Permits for NHS staff, volunteers and carers

Thank you for all of your support during the COVID-19 pandemic. We appreciate how challenging it has been for NHS staff, volunteers and carers to provide a front-line service.

We introduced COVID-19 parking permits for NHS staff, health or social care workers and NHS volunteers as a temporary measure to support the COVID-19 emergency response period.

In light of the publication of the government’s roadmap for lifting COVID-19 restrictions and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government's revised guidance, we will be withdrawing these permits for use from 1 July 2021.

You can buy an annual parking permit (£193 per year), subject to meeting the required criteria and providing the required evidence.

Coronavirus – resuming parking enforcement

From the week commencing Monday 29 March, we will be resuming our normal parking enforcement activities. Our Civil Enforcement Officers will issue advisory notices where motorists are parked in contravention of infringements and from week commencing 5 April, contraventions of restrictions will be fully enforced. The 7-day advisory notice will only apply to the restrictions where we had previously taken a more relaxed approach such as car parks and residential streets.

Vehicles parked on single or double yellow lines causing an obstruction or a safety risk to other road users will not be subject to the advisory notice period and will be issued with a penalty charge notice.

We would urge everyone to continue practice social distancing where possible when using our car parks and for your safety and the safety of others please use the Just Park app or a bank card, if you can, to pay for your ticket.
