Our works programme indicates that construction will start on site in September 2018 and take approximately 2 months to complete. Please note that any new parking restrictions will not come into effect until all the necessary works have been carried-out on site.
Further information on construction timescales, when they become available, can be found on the Roadworks section of Cornwall Council’s website at

You’ll notice that there’s lots of documents on the site, which you have to do a lot of trawling through. I have put the “Waiting Restriction Amendments” on the pdf document as below:
If you click on this picture it should open as a bigger file, with the purple lines showing the proposals. There are some other proposed sites, but these are too small to show on this map.  Hopefully it might make the process a bit easier. I did ask the Council if they could have put the areas onto their interactive map of Cornwall, but they said no, stating that it would add another layer of staffing and expense to the consultation, so I have done this map for free!

Please refer to the link towards the top of this post for the exact locations.

There was a referendum about the parking in Falmouth, but Cormac (or Cornwall Council) are wanting more consultation about ‘improving the flow of traffic’ in key areas.

Consultation Summary

Cormac Solutions on behalf of Cornwall Council are proposing to implement a package of restrictions on waiting at various locations within Falmouth.
The scheme originates from the Cornwall Council Parking review (requested by the Councils Parking Board) following individual  requests from Cornwall Councillors, the Councils Parking Services and Town Councils.  Requests received from members of the public were also taken into consideration following town public engagement exhibitions.
Scheme Objectives:
Locations have been identified and solutions proposed where indiscriminate and inappropriate parking is causing restrictions to the free flow of traffic and road safety.
