Controlled Parking Zones and Resident Parking Schemes

Controlled Parking Zones

A downloadable map of controlled parking zones is available below.

A controlled parking zone (CPZ) is an area where all on street parking is controlled. When you enter a zone there are entry signs to tell you what restrictions apply within it. Parking is only allowed in parking bays and yellow line restrictions apply everywhere else.

Motorists who want to park for a short time in a CPZ can use the pay and display bays. Pay and display bays can be used by motorcyclists, but there are also various on street parking bays for motorcycles which are free of charge. Within a CPZ permit holders will be able to park in designated permit bays during the hours of operation.

 Controlled Parking Zones in the city centre:

  • Inner Zone
  • Outer Zone
  • Gun Quarter
  • Jewellery Quarter

Other Controlled Parking Zones:

  • Humphrey Middlemore Drive, Selly Oak.
  • Chamberlain Gardens

Parking Charges

A list of of on-street parking charges and charging hours can be downloaded from the bottom of this page.


Residents Parking Schemes

A Residents’ Parking Scheme does not need zone entry signs and the restrictions would be individually signed. Residents Parking Schemes are normally implemented where a parking problem is specific to a few roads. As with CPZs, only permit holders will be able to park within designated bays on the roads covered by the scheme during the hours of operation.

Currently in Birmingham the following schemes have been implemented:

  • King Edward Road, Moseley
  • Tudor Road, Lyndon Road and Park Road, Sutton Coldfield
  • Boswell Road, Sutton Coldfield
  • Station Road, Kings Norton
  • Aston Match Day parking
