Please note: Following the publication of the government's roadmap for lifting COVID-19 restrictions, a decision has been taken to withdraw the emergency parking pass guidance by 21 June 2021. The parking pass will not be accepted after this date in the Councils Car Parks or parked anywhere on the road.

In accordance with the guidance issued by the Local Government Secretary, all NHS staff members, Health or Social Care Workers; or NHS Volunteer Responders may park for free in the Council owned car parks or on street bays during the Covid-19 emergency response period.

For NHS staff and volunteer responders, this permit may be obtained via the relevant NHS Trust and the Royal Voluntary Service.

If private carers wish to obtain the Permit, please contact Parking Services by email on Proof of care work will be required.

Please note this does not cover other areas such as yellow lines, disabled bays or loading bays.  Vehicles using these dispensations should not cause an obstruction.  Further information can be found at the following link:
