Where you can park

There are several types of parking spaces where you can park your vehicle in the borough. Parking availability varies on the location and other factors such as the type of permit or badge you have. Find out locations of our car parks, disabled parking facilities, pay and display parking spaces and information about traffic and parking schemes.


Free parking for key workers and frontline staff

Emergency staff and frontline workers helping vulnerable people can now apply to park for free in council-owned car parks and parking bays across Barking and Dagenham during the coronavirus pandemic.

Key worker permits are available to help these important staff continue providing vital services to the local community. Residents will also be able to park for 5 mins in CPZ zones without a permit, so they can drop off essential items outside loved ones’ doors, while socially distancing.

Keyworkers include NHS workers and Police, council workers who need to physically be in the borough and contractors delivering services on their behalf such as social care. Others include school staff visiting vulnerable children, those supporting vulnerable individuals, volunteers and faith leaders.

Two different types of key worker permit are available. One for two hours’ parking, and the other for unlimited where this is needed.

Information about the permits and current costs


30 minutes free parking

Local businesses and shoppers can benefit from plans to introduce 30 minutes free on-street parking in shopping parades. Our parking strategy aims to make parking fairer and safer for motorists, pedestrians and businesses across Barking and Dagenham. It aims to reduce congestion while helping to make a greener, healthier borough.

The strategy includes cheaper parking permits for electric or hybrid cars, parking permits for carers, more cycling bays and routes and tougher enforcement on parking around schools.

ID362 - Mill Point - New parking arrangement

Due to vehicle access issues within the section of road between Abbey Road to Mill Point, a new parking arrangement is to be put in place to indicate to motorists where they can and cannot park. The scheme will go live on Monday 1 June 2020.
