As summer approaches and people from across the north of London begin to use Ruislip Lido more and more, new temporary controls have been put into the place to avoid parking overflows into residential streets.
This comes after support for the scheme in both a formal and informal public consultation over the last year, the latter of which was itself was put forward at the request of nearby residents.
These new controls will be the first to use Hillingdon Borough Council’s new virtual permit scheme. Increased parking and anti-social behaviour patrols are also being increased on days of warm weather.
Breakspear Crematorium has also received approval from the council to act as an emergency overflow car park for the Lido, with spaces specifically set aside for mourners using the site during those periods.
Anybody caught parking illegally near the Lido will face the risk of a fine and potentially their vehicles being towed away. As well as that, anyone breaking the council’s public spaces
protection order at the park also faces the risk of a fine.
