Watford Borough Council (WBC) has suspended enforcement of the council’s off-road car parks, the town’s permit bays, pay and display bays and shared use bays, and has introduced a number of changes to how parking is managed across Watford.
The suspended enforcement means that key workers and residents may use any of the towns on street residential, shared use and permit parking bays without the fear of being fined.
The council’s off-road car parks are now also free to use (Avenue, Bushey Arches, Harebreaks, Longspring, Town Hall, Timberlake and Watford Business Park).
Residents and businesses who know of any space in the borough that is underused and could be repurposed for essential worker parking are asked to contact email@example.com
The council will continue to enforce yellow lines; a decision made because “it is vital that emergency services, delivery drivers, carers visiting vulnerable members of the community are able to still access residential areas, supermarkets and the hospital,” said the council.
Enforcement of the town centre and all main routes leading to it will also continue to ensure traffic flow and access.
The Parking Service can still be contacted during standard office hours for any general enquiries on 01923 278 890.
