Terms of reference for the Welsh Pavement Parking Task Force Group.

1. Scope

The Welsh Pavement Parking Task Force Group (TFG) will undertake a review of the evidence and implications for a ban on pavement parking and obstructions to the footway in Wales. It is proposed the final report will go to the Minister and the deputy Minister in autumn 2020.

Evidence in from stakeholders/user groups in Wales is to be gathered along with analysis of data, reports, or findings from other enquires used to determine outcomes and make recommendations.

A series of work streams managed by Project Groups (PG) will be set up by the TFG to investigate the practical issues associated with making this change. The work will identify such matters as how it should be implemented, taking into account costs and benefits, as well as the means of delivering the infrastructure and behavioural changes required for it to be successful.

2. Out of Scope
