Parking permits

Coronavirus - National lockdown

To help support our residents and communities during national lockdown, we are changing the way we prioritise parking enforcement to reflect the way working patterns have changed.

Whilst car parks will not be free of charge, our priority will be road safety e.g. 

  • emergency services being able to access homes
  • parking on single and double yellow lines
  • appropriate use of bus lanes and bus stops
  • ensuring that cars are not parked over two parking bays
  • obstructions on roads
  • appropriate use of disabled/loading bays

This list is not exhaustive, but we want to assure you that we are focusing on keeping our roads safe, rather than enforcement. Therefore, you may see less car parking patrols that usual. If a car is safely parked in a residential street, then it is possible that it may not receive a parking fine.

Check car parks we operate

NHS staff, health and social care workers and NHS volunteers are still able to park for free in any of our car parks, as long as they display their COVID-19 parking permit.

Please continue to 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.
