Permit parking is to be introduced in two more areas of Norwich.
Some £40,000 is to be spent to introduce the permit parking in the College Road area in the Golden Triangle and in the Salisbury Road area of Thorpe Hamlet.
The introduction of the permit parking was agreed at a meeting of the Norwich highways agency committee - made up of city and county councillors - today.
In the College Road area, permit parking will be introduced in parts of College Road, Recreation Road, Jessopp Road, Girton Road and Bensley Road.
In Thorpe Hamlet, streets which will be covered include Salisbury Road, The Sidings, Thorpe Road, Cremorne Lane and Roseville Close.

Chris Dunn presented a petition from people in Wellesley Avenue South and Cintra Road calling for permit parking in those Thorpe Hamlet streets, saying they were already suffering because of commuter and football parking.
Mr Dunn said: 'We are suffering on a daily basis from commuter parking from 5.30am and goes on all day.
'It blocks drives and we are suffering abuse from certain people when we ask them to move.
'This is exacerbated on football days.'
Tony Adams, chairman of the committee, said he would ask officers to add those streets to the list where permit parking could be considered.
But he warned resources to carry out consultations were limited and other streets were already on the waiting list.
