From June 15 Northwood residents will see reinstated parking restrictions and charges that had been temporarily lifted in response to the pandemic.
A number of parking concessions, including free and unlimited parking in council car parks and on-street bays, were introduced by the council at the end of March to support residents and key workers as the country went into lockdown.
As lockdown eases and the council seeks to help the borough and its economy return to some level of normality, drivers will once again be required to pay to park in council-owned public car parks and on-street pay and display bays.
The issuing of free emergency residential permits, also in place since March, is under review but will remain in force until further notice.
Notices have been installed throughout the borough’s streets to give people advance notice of the reinstatement of normal parking enforcement and charges.
Council enforcement officers will continue to patrol and provide advice on how and where to park safely before the change on 15 June.
Hillingdon will continue to allow NHS staff and other essential key workers to park free of charge in the borough. Other concessions, for blue badge holders whose permits have expired, will be honoured until 30 September.
Cllr Keith Burrows, Hillingdon Council’s Cabinet Member for Planning and Transportation, said: “During the early stages of the pandemic, it was important that we lift restrictions where we could to help key workers and residents who were at home more.
“But in order to support the easing of the lockdown and the reopening of the economy, particularly in our town centres, we feel that the time is right to ask drivers to help us by observing pre-pandemic parking arrangements.
“We don’t want anyone to have to incur a parking penalty, so we urge drivers to heed the rules and ensure that they always park legally, safely and considerately.”
