Coronavirus update: car parks and on-street parking


Tuesday, 24 March, 2020

In light of the announcement made by the Prime Minister on 23 March 2020, we are making temporary changes to our parking operations.

  • All council owned car parks will remain open and operate free of charge until further notice.
  • All permit holders, both car park and on-street residential, will have their permits automatically extended to cover the period where parking is provided for free.
  • We will not be processing new car park, on street Visitor and residential parking permit applications until further notice.
  • Our civil enforcement officers will only enforce parking in the interests of public safety.
