Portsmouth City Council has decided that two parking zones are to be reinstated in Southsea, three years after they were removed by the previous council administration.
Portsmouth currently have 33 such zones around the city, with the first one established in 1999.
Residents are required to display a permit in their vehicle whenever it is parked in the zone.
Several more areas in the city have been earmarked for future implementation.
Each zone adheres to different conditions, tailor-made for the specific problems faced in that area.
Here is our full list of parking zones in Portsmouth, the number of spaces and permits for each one.
AA NEWBOLT ROAD
This was introduced to address issues residents had with large commercial vehicles parking in the road for long periods of time.
