Parking enforcement update

Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, the council eased parking restrictions for residents as they know how important it was for people to drop off essential items to friends and family.

There is 5 minutes free parking in resident and pay & display bays for all residents and visitors across the borough, so that they are able to look after their loved ones by dropping off food and medicine.

In addition, motorists using the pay and display or paid bays and certain council car parks may park for 30 minutes free of charge provided they register their parking session. Details of how to do this are displayed on the tariff boards at each location.

Since the start of the pandemic the council has also provided over 2,000 free Key Worker Parking Permits to NHS staff, frontline workers and volunteers to allow them to continue the incredible work to keep everyone safe and stop the spread of the virus.

Free parking permits for NHS staff, frontline workers and volunteers will continue until the end of March 2021. Please do not contact Parking Services for an extension as this will be done automatically if you already hold a Key Worker Permit.

The following car parks / parking facilities have been suspended from 25 January until 31 July 2021:

  • Bobby Moore Way
  • Bobby Moore Way Car Park
  • Clock House Avenue
  • Broadway 

to be used as COVID-19 vaccination centres and to facilitate the vaccination process.
