Coronavirus update for parking

Enforcement patrols

Our Civil Enforcement Officers are carrying out full enforcement patrols.

All parking restrictions are fully enforceable and we may issue a Penalty Charge Notice to any vehicle that does not follow a parking restriction.

Parking at home

If you are furloughed or working from home and have trouble parking on the street, you need to contact us. We can then review any parking dispensations that we may be able to apply.

Reporting a parking problem

You can report a parking issue online.


Office operation 

You can contact us online with any requests and enquiries.

We already have several online automated systems to manage the administration process and deal with your enquiries, including: 


Renewing existing resident permits 

You need to ensure that all resident and visitor permits are valid and up-to-date. You can renew any permits online via MiPermit.

Requesting new parking restrictions (Traffic Regulation Orders)

We are continuing to accept requests for new parking restriction online. However, while people are still following self-isolation guidance, we may need to put on hold: 

  • existing and new site assessments
  • any informal and formal consultations
  • any Committee Meeting decisions
  • implementation of approved Traffic Regulation Orders

Park and Ride

You need to check with Essex County Council regarding their Park and Ride service.

Taxis and private hire vehicles

We have produced some coronavirus safety guidance for taxi and private hire vehicle drivers and passengers.

You can view our coronavirus safety guidance for taxi drivers.

You can also view our coronavirus safety guidance for taxi passengers.
