Coronavirus updates for parking and streets

Social distancing bay suspension

Newham Council has extended pavements in some parts of the borough as an emergency measure to ensure social distancing can be maintained on our shopping streets and to help ease pressure on public transport, by encouraging more people to walk and cycle.

In line with guidance published by government, local authorities were asked to implement the changes as swiftly as possible. You can view the government guidance on the gov.uk website.

This is especially important in the context that over 50% of Newham households do not own a car, therefore we need to make sure that walking and cycling is a safe and attractive option. 

As a result, some parking bays have been suspended to allow these social distancing measures to be implemented.  This is a temporary measure that will continue while the government advises that social distancing measures should remain in place.

Following feedback from residents and businesses the council has undertaken a review of these measures and has reconsidered which suspensions are still required.

The pavements in locations where the bays have been suspended are of varying widths and we have considered where it is safe to reinstate parking bays where the footway is sufficiently wide to maintain social distancing. It has therefore been agreed to reinstate some bays. Please see the tables below to view which bays have been reinstated.
