Parking enforcement 8 June 2020
The Council have now reintroduced normal enforcement of parking restrictions. Therefore, you must now have a valid permit to park within your Controlled Parking Zone to avoid receiving a Penalty Charge Notice. You may renew or apply for a permit by visiting the online permit account page.
We have also:
- reinstated our customer services team
- contacted all registered permit holders with advice
Parking permit rules
If you do not have a parking permit
You must now have a valid permit to park within your Controlled Parking Zone. You may apply for a permit and also purchase visitor vouchers online. All registered permit holders have been contacted with advice to help avoid receiving a Penalty Charge Notice.
If you have a parking permit
You should continue to park as normal within marked permit bays.
Changing details on your permit
If you need to change the vehicle on your permit or update any other details, you can still do this within your online permit account
Refunds for permits
Refunds for cancelled permits will not be processed during this time as we must prioritise critical activities. In exceptional circumstances please make contact with us at email@example.com to request a refund.
Health, Care, Volunteers and other key workers
If you are a health, care, volunteer or key worker you can park in some additional Barnet locations.
You will need to display an HM Government ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19) Parking Pass’ issued by your employer, a copy of your NHS ID or a letter on headed paper from your employer confirming your status.
This will allow you to park:
- In a permit bay (without a permit)
- In any council run car park (without making payment),
- In pay and display/’pay by phone’ space on street (without making payment),
- On a single yellow line providing that you are not obstructing traffic or compromising safety. Parking suspensions
You may not park:
- In a suspended parking bay
- At your normal place of residence or other locations whilst not at work or volunteering
- On a double yellow line
- Where loading and unloading restrictions (kerb markings) are in operation
- Zig zag lines at a pedestrian crossing
- Keep clear markings outside a school, a hospital or fire, police or ambulance station
- Adjacent to dropped kerbs
- In a bus stop
- In a disabled bay on-street or in a car park
- In an ambulance bay
- In an electric vehicles bay
We are working on continuing arrangements for key workers, and will be contacting relevant stakeholders with further advice.
Visitor parking vouchers
We are currently unable to provide printed, scratch card style visitor vouchers and are working on restoring this service. Virtual visitor vouchers are still available and you can purchase these online.
Blue Badge and Disabled Persons Freedom Pass
If you have a Blue Badge which is due to expire, or has already expired as from 1 January 2020, you can continue to use it to park as normal during the COVID-19 pandemic. This will be the case initially until 30 September 2020.
We are continuing to process applications, renewals, and appeal cases for Blue Badges and Disabled Persons Freedom Pass but please be mindful that our usual response times may not be met. Thank you for your understanding in advance.
