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
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)
Parking across a dropped footway
Car Club bays
Dedicated disabled permit holder bays
Electric vehicle charging 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.”
