Woodbridge will be introducing parking restrictions from April this year as part of the new initiative instigated by the civil parking enforcement (CPE) scheme.
Announced in January, the CPE scheme will be managed by local councils who will monitor and penalise illegal parking instead of the police.
The town has suffered ongoing parking problems especially in residential areas with people often leaving their vehicles outside properties for days at a time to use the train station and other amenities.
The CPE already manage public car parks but now they will be responsible for residential and private parking issues and legalities including nuisance and irresponsible parking aiming to help pedestrians and vulnerable road users.
Town mayor Patrick Gillard said: "This will make a lot of people a lot happier even though it won't bring a smile to the faces of those who park illegally."
