Maidstone relaxes parking restrictions again  image

Maidstone Borough Council is once again temporarily relaxing parking restrictions for resident parking bays during the second lockdown during the Coronavirus outbreak with immediate effect.

  • Residents displaying valid resident parking permits can use off-street car parks for free at all times of the day in order to ease congestion on residential streets until Thursday 3 December 2020.
  • Business permit holders displaying permits can use off-street car parks for free at all times of the day in order to ease congestion on residential streets until Thursday 3 December 2020.
  • Non-resident permit holders are able to park in resident parking bays until Thursday 3 December 2020.

Please remember both Mote Park and Cobtree Park are excluded from this concession so that park visitors are still able to use these car parks.

Jeff Kitson, Parking Services Manager at Maidstone Borough Council said:

“Once again we are reacting quickly to this new lockdown situation and trying to help our residents in the best way we can.

“Formal NHS permit concessions remain in place and will be honoured in line with the published guidance until government advice changes.

“On-street resident parking bays and off-street car parks remain free for NHS health and social care staff displaying a formal government approved permit in their windscreen."

All double yellow lines and single yellow lines which are placed to protect junctions and ensure highway safety remain active to ensure the free flow of traffic, particularly for emergency services and refuse collections.
