Parking Enforcement during the Coronavirus outbreak
The Parking Enforcement service has continued to operate throughout the crisis in order to deliver an essential traffic management function, to help to keep the roads safe and avoid dangerous parking becoming an additional burden on the Police.
Although many parking restrictions weren’t enforced for a time, with growing traffic volumes full parking management has now been resumed.
We are sympathetic to NHS teams and Carers parking in our neighbourhoods where there are restrictions or when less parking may be available than usual as more people are at home with their cars.
Where you see parking restrictions, please think about why they exist and park as sensibly and considerately as you can.
Pay and display
All of our Pay and Display car parks near the Lister Hospital and in the Town Centre are operating normally and accepting cash. For quick, convenient parking payments you can sign up with PayByPhone.
If you get a parking ticket you can pay or challenge it through the online PCN portal.
You can also call 03300 883 862 to make a payment.
Parking in the Old Town
Some of the parking bays on the High Street have been suspended to provide space for pedestrians and to support businesses. You must not park in suspended bays.
Additional cycle parking has also been installed to help residents visit the High Street by healthier and more sustainable transport.
More three hour bays have recently been created in Church Lane, Drapers Way, Primett Road and Walkern Road to help customers find parking easily. Three hours free parking is also being offered in Primett Road North car park, widely known as the Waitrose car park.
