Parking permits - residential, visitors and market traders

Parking permits

Coronavirus: How it affects parking

We recognise working patterns have changed as people have been asked to work from home where possible or are having to self-isolate because of coronavirus. Because of this, we will be prioritising our enforcement to make sure roads remain safe and most importantly that emergency services and food deliveries can get to where they need to. This means that we will be relaxing the enforcement of parking restrictions in residential streets unless there is a safety or obstruction issue. Our main priorities will be any single or double yellow lines where vehicles are causing an obstruction, school zig-zags (for those schools remaining open), bus stops, disabled bays and loading bays. We will continue patrols in our car parks.

We are also supporting the police in enforcing social distancing. If we see cars parked outside countryside/open spaces car parks which have been closed we will be taking enforcement. This is to support the government's advice to stay local and not travel unnecessarily for exercise.

We have a range of parking permits designed to help residents, visitors, businesses, employees and market traders find the parking they need.
