Parking Christie parking scheme

Update: May 2023 

The Christie is the largest cancer treatment centre in Europe and has extended its facilities in recent years. In 2015, a parking scheme was introduced to tackle issues in residential areas as a result of those parking when visiting the centre. The parking scheme proved successful, but there have been problems in the surrounding areas. 

It was hoped that we would have had an expanded parking scheme operational by now, however following feedback from residents, and discussions at the drop-in sessions at Withington Library in December 2022, we have carried out a further review and have several things we want to resolve before we introduce the revised scheme. 

The issues raised were primarily around the arrangements for visitors and the additional restrictions created by the marked limited waiting bays and double yellow lines that formed part of the scheme. These have been reviewed and where necessary, minor amendments have been approved. Residents on these streets have been contacted directly.

An outcome of the review has been the development of a new policy regarding Residents Parking Schemes, which affects permits and how they assist residents and businesses. All residents within the Christie Parking Scheme (both existing and extension areas) will be contacted separately about this matter by mail.

We hope to make the required on-street changes by June/July and have the scheme operational by August/September 2023. In the meantime, enforcement on streets covered by the expanded scheme remains on hold. 


Parking restrictions have now been introduced on the streets named within the Christie Resident Permit Scheme.  

Parking restrictions will be enforced between the hours of 8am and 6pm weekdays only. There are no restrictions in place during weekends. 

Signs have been installed on street where the restrictions apply. 

  • Permit holders can park for unlimited length of time within parking bays or on streets with signs on entry indicating ‘Permit Holders Only Past This Point Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm’
    Limited waiting bays are throughout the permit area meaning visitors to the Christie area can utilise these to park for free for a time period, usually up to 3 hours but this can vary depending on location. 
  • There are areas marked with: 
    • double yellow lines (no waiting at any time)  
    • single yellow lines (no waiting between the hours indicated by the sign) 

We will withdraw misused permits and may take further action.  

Your resident or business permit is only valid for your registration number – it's not transferable.
