Free temporary parking permits for COVID-19 key workers

We are providing free temporary parking permits for key workers during this difficult period.

Over 400 free temporary parking permits have been distributed to key organisations across Lewisham to enable key workers to park without the worry of receiving a penalty charge notice (PCN).

This includes emergency services (police, ambulance and fire brigade), NHS staff and volunteers helping with the COVID-19 crisis.

You can find a full list of key workers on the GOV.UK website.

  • single yellow lines
