From 1 June 2020, parking charges will be reinstated for all on-street parking pay and display bays.
This is to help support the reopening of the town, with more businesses permitted to trade again, by ensuring a turnover in availability of parking places. This will help businesses operating in areas where they are reliant on the availability of Pay and Display bays for their customers.
From 1 June 2020, parking enforcement operations will be increased to monitor all on-street parking contraventions including:
If vehicles are found in contravention of these regulations then they may be issued with a PCN.
We will also start to monitor permit parking places including residents bays. However, until the middle of June we will only issue a warning notice to advise that the car needs to start complying with the need to display a valid permit otherwise a PCN may be issued.
Parking charges for council owned car parks are still suspended to support those people who are returning to work and are taking the government advice to avoid using public transport where possible.
We ask that you please respect our civil enforcement officers and the work they do at this difficult time.
These arrangements will be reviewed in line with further government announcements.
