Louisa place permit parking area consultation

​​We are proposing a highways improvement scheme and would like to hear from you.

  • Scheme Ref: CPZ-K/LP
  • Type of scheme: Parking
  • Ward: Butetown

Scheme overview

We are proposing to introduce a parking zone in the Cardiff Bay area. As part of this scheme, we would like to introduce a “Permit Parking Area” on Louisa Place. This means:

  1. Any vehicle parking in Louisa Place will need to clearly display a valid permit
  2. There will be no permit parking bays painted on the road and instead drivers will be informed that only vehicles displaying a valid permit may park in Louisa Place by signs at the entrance/exit to the area
  3. The Permit Parking Area will apply 24 hours a day, every day
  4. Permits will be zonal and continue to be issued as they currently are, with all properties being eligible for two resident permits and one permit for visitors   
  5. ​Any existing Louisa Place permit holders will be allowed to park in the new Permit Parking Area. Vehicles parked on private driveways will not need a permit.

No changes will take place to any parking charges, permit prices or disabled bays as part of this scheme.

Have your say

This consultation is now closed. 
81% of the responses we received were in favour of the scheme and 19%  were not in favour of the scheme.

Following the feedback, we have decided to proceed with the scheme. We will now start the Traffic Regulation Order (TRO)​ process. 

You will be able to view detailed parking designs and formally object to the scheme if you want to. 

The making of a TRO is a lengthy process and can take 6 to 9 months to complete.
