Residents' parking zone coming to Cotham in December
A second residents-only parking zone will be in place by December according to the city council.
The new parking scheme in Cotham is being introduced to deter commuters from clogging up residential streets and to encourage people to use public transport.
The city council approved the scheme, which will run from Cotham Hill to Redland Road, in July.
A spokesman for the council told ThisisBristol that work would begin within the next few weeks to mark out the bays and the double-yellow lines.

After a lengthy consultation period and arguments on both sides, the council introduced the first RPZ pilot in Kingsdown nearly two years ago.
Residents covered by the RPZ have to pay £30 a year to park one car, £80 for two while businesses would have to pay £100 for each parking permit.
People who do not have a permit would have to pay to park during working hours or run the risk of a parking ticket.
The zone will operate from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday. Each household is entitled to 100 visitors’ permits per year, the first 50 will be free and the rest will cost £1 each.
