COVID-19: Travel and parking

Parking for key workers

We have suspended charges and time restrictions for key workers on all council car parks and on-street council parking bays to help front line workers and volunteers during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The fees have been waived to show support for key workers at this time – including staff from the NHS, social care and other essential services – to help them carry on their important duties.

Following Government advice, all other residents are urged to continue staying at home if they are not carrying out essential work or travel.
