New powers to penalise inappropriate and illegal lorry parking in Kent
New powers have been given to Kent County Council to help keep roads in the county clear of illegally parked HGVs.
For the first time, KCC will be allowed to clamp and issue penalty notices to drivers in Ashford, Canterbury, Dover, Folkestone and Hythe, Maidstone, Swale and Thanet.
The new powers will come into effect on January 1.
Inappropriate and illegal lorry parking will potentially be an issue in the areas in and around the M2 and A2, as well as the M20, A256 and A299 in the east of the county, impacting the lives of residents.
