The parking rules and regulations are detailed in a legal document known as the ‘Parking Order’. The current Borough of Oadby and Wigston (Off-street Parking Places) Order was introduced in 2021 and can be found here:

The RNIB, Leicestershire Constabulary and Leicestershire Councils are working together to encourage people to be more considerate when parking. People, such as the blind and partially sighted, wheelchair users and those with pushchairs, sometimes have to walk on the road, make detours or turn back if they are unable to get past.
By parking responsibly, you:
- Should allow at least enough space for a double buggy to pass,
- Will be helping keep pedestrians safe and
- Be adhering to local parking restrictions that are in place (yellow lines and zigzags).
If you do not park responsibly, you:
- Could risk someone having an accident,
- Could risk your vehicle being damaged and
- Could be fined a minimum of £30.
