Written Questions can be tabled by MPs and Lords to request specific information information on the work, policy and activities of a Government Department
11th Mar 2020
To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the number of injuries caused by pavement parking.

In early 2019, the Department for Transport completed an evidence review of pavement parking in England, looking at the extent of the problem, the effectiveness of the current legislation and options for change. As part of this process, Department officials sought information from a number of local authorities on the number of personal injuries directly attributable to pavement parking. However, little data was available.

The Transport Select Committee carried out an inquiry into pavement parking in summer 2019. The Government has now responded to the committee setting out our intention to carry out a public consultation on possible solutions to this complex problem. The consultation will seek to elicit more detailed data on pavement parking-related injuries nationally.

Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Transport)
