Parking Permits - Coronavirus update

Changes to our permit schemes as part of our response to Coronavirus.

Business and residential Parking Permits

During the coronavirus outbreak and in line with current government directives we have made all Council car parks free for key workers, community volunteers and those carrying out essential shopping.

We are suspending the Parking Permit scheme for 3 months, when the position will be reviewed.

During this time, we ask that you or your business staff do not use the car parks unless you are a key worker, community volunteer or carrying out essential shopping.

Please keep your paper permits safe so they can be displayed later in the year.

If you have paid for your permit/s in full we are proposing that your renewal charge next year will be for the number of active months you were able to use the car parks this year.

If you have cancelled your direct debit, please send the permit back to us. Once the restrictions have been lifted and you would like a new permit you can apply for another in the normal way.

If you are a business permit holder and pay by direct debit, please do not cancel your mandate at the bank. We will not request any payment until 20th July 2020 at the earliest and will issue an invoice in advance of the first direct debit payment once the restrictions have been lifted.
