Self-isolation and moving your vehicle
We know that some residents who have a confirmed COVID-19 case or have been advised to isolate may be concerned about how to move their vehicle. The legislation for "self-isolation" allows for a number of circumstances where people may need to leave isolation. This includes "to fulfil a legal obligation". We have discussed this with our Legal Services team and they are satisfied that relocating a vehicle parked in contravention of a restriction would meet that criteria. Moving a vehicle would also not involve coming into contact with a third party.
The council will continue to enforce parking restrictions throughout the COVID-19 outbreak. We would ask all drivers to pay attention to these restrictions as they are important for keeping the highway clear for emergency services, supply chain deliveries, public transport and other vital users, as well as maintaining road safety.
Please note that in off street car parks, disabled bays, electric vehicle bays, motorcycles bays and the requirement to park within the bay markings are still subject to enforcement regardless of whether the pay and display restrictions are being enforced.
Resident parking zones
Enforcement of the permit parking restrictions in Resident Parking Zones 1-18, 20, 22 and 23 is in place. If you need a resident parking permit, even if you are usually not eligible for one, you can apply for a parking permit online.
Pay and display parking
All Pay and Display restrictions are being enforced as normal. If you park a vehicle in any on-street or off street location where a Pay and Display charge is payable, you will need to obtain a ticket from the machine or use PayByPhone cashless parking payments. You can use PayByPhone to pay for your parking on your mobile device and this works remotely so you can extend your parking from home if needed.
