Changes to parking restrictions due to coronavirus and new parking charges

From Monday 1 June, parking restrictions will resume and motorists will need a permit to park during controlled parking times. Anyone found to be parked without a permit may receive a Penalty Charge Notice.

We have issued more than 5,000 temporary parking permits to key workers and we will continue to support frontline NHS and school staff, emergency services and council social workers to park for free using new paperless virtual permits.
