All comments received will be considered when deciding whether or not to make the experimental scheme permanent.


From 5 June 2020 there will be experimental provisions to facilitate parking for key workers during the COVID-19 pandemic by enabling authorised vehicles belonging to other authorised essential workers (as determined by the Director for Transport and Highways) to park in pay-by-phone visitor parking bays by establishing a payment cap and abolishing the maximum stay requirements on all pay-by-phone bays for vehicles authorised by the Council to park in the Borough. If the need arises, these workers would also be able to park in residents’ parking bays on payment of a flat fee, but this will not be rolled out initially and would be kept under review if brought in.
