Parking wardens return to Cumbria streets
Traffic wardens have returned to the streets of an area of Cumbria, after a two-week absence.
The arrangement whereby Allerdale Borough enforced on-street parking restrictions on behalf of Cumbria County Council expired on 31 October.
Following a new agreement, there will now be four officers on patrol.
Cumbria is one of the few areas not to charge for on-street parking, instead enforcing restrictions with a time disc scheme and residents' permits.
Restrictions in Allerdale's public car parks are enforced directly by the borough council, but the county council is working on a new county-wide approach to parking enforcement.
