Have parking charges been re-instated?

On and off-street parking charges and enforcement of these areas were re-instated on Monday 8 June 2020. 
As the lockdown eases, businesses open and people start returning to work we will see an increase in traffic on the roads.
It is important that we respond to unprecedented changing demands and priorities and start to regulate parking
again.

Is it safe to use a pay and display ticket
machine?

The frequency of cleaning the machines will be increased but it is impractical for all public surfaces to be cleaned prior to contact. It is recommended that you take the same precautions you would when shopping, using ATMs, opening doors etc.

I have received a Warning Notice.  What do you I do?

If you have received a warning notice your vehicle was seen parked in contravention of a parking restriction. You do not need to do anything with the notice but you should not park in the same manner again as you may receive a penalty charge notice.

Has enforcement of the residential controlled parking zones been re-instated?


Enforcement of the controlled residential streets immediately off Shenley Road, Borehamwood and Watling Street, Radlett will start from the 8 June due to the potential displacement as a result of the social distancing measures installed by Hertfordshire County Council Highways.

Full enforcement of all controlled parking zones will resume on 6 July, so as to provide sufficient time for permits to be issued that may have expired or were applied for during the lock down period. Please be aware that both double and single yellow lines  within the controlled  zones will be enforced during the hours of operation. It will only be the permit holder bays that will be subject to a warning notice period.

My parking permit has expired during lockdown.  What should I do?

Parking permit renewal letters are being sent out to residents for permits that expired in April, May and those that are due to expire in  June. Once we have received your completed renewal form and payment, the permit will be processed. Due to the temporary suspension of the parking service, the permit expiry date will be extended.

My Blue Badge has expired and I have not
received my renewed badge?

Local authority parking teams have been asked at this time not to issue Penalty Charge Notices if an expired Blue Badge is on display, with an expiry date of 1 January 2020 onwards. This relaxation of enforcement against expired Blue Badges should continue initially until 30 September 2020. This is due to the issuing authorities having a backlog of Blue Badge applications and reapplications.

The only enforcement suspended is for expired badges, all other enforcement against other types of misuse or parking where blue badge concessions are not valid will continue.

 

COVID 19 UPDATE

As lockdown measures ease, charges in all council-owned pay and display car parks and on-street pay and display bays across the borough, will resume on 8 June. Unless parking has been suspended due to social distancing measures.

Return to enforcement of the residential parking zones will be phased to allow us time to process new permit applications or renew permits which expired during the lockdown.

Enforcement of the controlled residential streets immediately off Shenley Road, Borehamwood and Watling Street, Radlett will start from the 8 June, due to the potential displacement as a result of the social distancing measures installed by Hertfordshire County Council Highways.

Full enforcement of all controlled parking zones will resume on 6 July.
