Coronavirus (COVID-19): parking restrictions and CPZs

Find out about our free key worker permit extension and the end of relaxed COVID-19 parking enforcement.

Parking restrictions and controlled parking zones (CPZs) play an important role in keeping traffic flowing and reducing congestion on our roads. This is extremely important during the COVID-19 outbreak because our key workers need to travel unrestricted or delayed.

As our roads become busier as lockdown eases, we need to ensure our key workers are able to continue their work and are not delayed by congested roads.

Free temporary key worker permits

We have recently revised the criteria for our free temporary parking permit for COVID-19 key workers. Find further details on our free temporary key worker permit page.

Parking enforcement changes from 1 June 2020

From Monday 1 June, 2020 parking enforcement across the borough will resume and we will begin issuing Penalty Charge Notices for all contraventions.

Please ensure you have a valid permit if parking in a CPZ. You can apply for a parking permit on our website.

We also have several cashless ways for you to pay for Pay and Display. Find cashless ways to pay for parking.
