The city council is responsible for managing on-street parking in the city. On many streets there is no need to restrict parking. At other locations it can be necessary to prevent parking for safety reasons with, for example, yellow lines. In other circumstances it is necessary to restrict parking to certain users, for example, to help local residents or businesses.
To view parking enforcement policy visit the Norfolk County Council parking pages and click the link for the Civil Parking Enforcement Guidance Manual.
Where can you park on-street in Norwich city centre?
Short stay pay & display parking is available on some city centre streets. The hours of operation, length of stay allowed and parking charges depend upon the location of the parking places within the city centre.

In the city centre, charges range from 40p for 15 minutes and in the secondary areas from 20p for 15 minutes. The maximum amount of time you are allowed to stay will be indicated on a sign.
