Outside Greater London, the local authorities that can permit and control on-street parking are the county councils and the unitary (metropolitan district) councils. The power may be delegated from one local authority to another under section 101 of the Local Government Act 1972. It may be used as part of a ‘general scheme of traffic control’ within section 37 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act
