Motorcycle parking guidelines

Motorcycles must be parked in a sensible manner that reduces the impact on spaces for other vehicles. For example, where possible park between bays or at the end of bays.

Motorcyclists should park in a bay at 90 degrees to the kerb, if it is safe to do so. This is not always possible due to the gradient of the road or where it would make the motorcycle stick out into oncoming traffic. 

We also request that motorcyclists park alongside motorcycles that are already parked to minimise the space taken up.
