Unenforceable Parking Restrictions in Cheltenham June 2009

The following table lists unenforcable parking restrictions at the start of June 2009, released by Cheltenham Borough Council under a Freedom of Information request. For more detail see the Gloucestershire Echo newspaper article "35 streets where cars can park illegally" dated 23 June 2009. As per any FOI response, this information is now public domain.

The information was originally emailed to me by CBC in a proprietary format. I have converted it to HTML below. You can also download the original MS Excel XLSX file and my CSV version. CBC's Policy and Performance unit has stated that they will also publish this information "on our website in the next few days" (30 June 2009). When that happens, try the Cheltenham Borough Council Freedom of Information Disclosure Log.

Note that these defects may have already been corrected. This is not a list of places where you can park and be guaranteed not to be prosecuted. In particular, dangerous parking can, and should, get you prosecuted regardless of signs or markings.
