The council is making changes to city centre parking restrictions and blue badge applications in light of the latest government advice on Coronavirus.
With immediate effect, restrictions on resident parking in the city centre are being suspended. This means those who live on streets where pay and display is usually in operation during the day can now park in a pay and display bay, without penalty, at any time.
This suspension measure has been introduced to support those who are currently working from home or self-isolating, and the suspension will be in place for the next 12 weeks.
The council will take a further view on this at the end of the 12 week period, or earlier if the situation improves.
The council’s Football Match Residents Parking Zones (FMRPZ) is not currently being enforced following the cancellation of Premier League matches, and this will continue until further notice.
Parking restrictions denoted by yellow lines are still in force so the public are kindly reminded to park responsibly. In particular around any key buildings such as hospitals, care homes, police, fire and ambulance sites and schools.
