Covid-19 restrictions

We are now moving through the Prime Ministers roadmap out of lockdown. Everyone must stay local and follow the rules, including the rule of six. Remember, shop safe and shop local and stay outside when meeting others – fresh air reduces the risk of passing Covid-19 on.

More information on current restrictions and guidelines is available on the government website.

Remember, advice around Covid-19 can change, so keep up to date with the latest information.

Key Worker Permit changes from 16 November 2020

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Tower Hamlets has supported key workers with more than 6,000 free parking permits.

As lockdown restrictions have changed, the number of free permits in use has made parking across the borough problematic with demand exceeding the limited number of on-street spaces. As a result, we have issued a reduced number of key worker permits to NHS and Social Care Staff. We are no longer taking any further applications for key worker permits.

Key worker permit holders

For existing key worker permit holders under the new scheme, the permit will be valid until further notice.

A key worker permit allows parking in Tower Hamlets car parks and on-street parking bays signed:

  • Business Permit Holders Only
  • Business Permit Holders or Pay by phone
  • Pay and Display
  • Permit Holders Only
  • Permit Holders or Pay by phone
  • Resident Permit Holders Only

If you no longer have a key worker permit, you will need to make alternative parking arrangements.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding in these difficult times.
