Primrose Double Yellow and Single Yellow Lines

Many will remember the fiasco some years ago when newly-painted basic dark yellow lines were being burnt off by the Council and replaced with ‘Primrose’ colour yellow which is considered more in keeping with a Conservation Area. Well, recently it has been noticed that replacement yellow lines which have been damaged etc., are now being replaced using the bright yellow paint again. When querying this with the Council’s Conservation office, the following reply was received:

“As for the double yellow lines in conservation areas, regrettably the highway agencies, utility companies and Highway Manager have significant ‘permitted development’ rights in conservation officers and whilst it is best practice to use the light yellow paint I have no statutory powers to demand it.
Therefore if they choose to revert back to the dark yellow paint there is little I can do about it. In most of the other conservation areas across the city the dark yellow paint is regrettably used.”
