Bank holiday parking

On bank holidays most parking restrictions still apply, though there are some which we do not enforce.

Resident parking bays

On bank holidays you:
  • do not need a resident parking permit or resident visitor parking permit to park in a residents bay ( see below for disabled resident bays)
  • do not need a ticket, or  pay  for  parking by phone, to park in a pay and display  bay
  • do not need a resident parking permit, resident visitor parking permit, ticket , or pay for parking by phone, to park in a shared use bay which is where a pay & display ticket and permit are both valid.
If you do not display the correct permit or Blue Badge you can be issued with a parking fine (penalty charge notice). We may also remove your vehicle and take it to the Newham Vehicle Pound.
Make sure you always check the days and times on the time plate signs closest to where you want to park before you leave your vehicle.
