Motorists encouraged to take advantage of relaxed parking enforcement this bank holiday

17:07 22 August 2014

Relaxed parking restrictions are set to be trailed across Redbridge this bank holiday Monday.

Motorists will be able to park in the following areas:

Resident or shared use bays, e.g. dual use business permit and pay & display bays

Single yellow lines (except where kerb chevrons indicate that a loading ban is in operation or those that are operational on a Sunday)

Pay and display bays

Business permit holder bays

Doctors’ bays

Loading bays

Motorcycle bays

The council will continue to enforce the following:

Double yellow lines

Single yellow lines that are operational on a Sunday

Where a loading ban is in operation (indicated by a single/double yellow line with adjacent kerb chevrons and a nearby sign stating the hours during which loading is not permitted)

Bus stops

Footway parking

Zig-zag lines

Parking across a dropped footway

Double parking

Car Club bays

Coach bays

Dedicated disabled permit holder bays

Electric vehicle charging bays

Suspended bays

A proposal to make these arrangements permanent for all future Bank Holidays will be discussed at the council’s Policy and Resources Committee on September 2.

Cllr Baldesh Nijjar, cabinet member for the environment, said: “We know that residents and businesses care deeply about parking in the Borough and want more to be done to make it easier and less restrictive.

“We’ve listened and the proposals going to service committee represent a more relaxed approach to parking enforcement during Bank Holidays.

“We must also recognise that restrictions play a vital role in managing traffic and congestion so we need to keep a close eye on how these changes affect these.”
