Coronavirus (COVID-19) parking advice
Parking restriction enforcement
The enforcement of all parking restrictions will continue through any future lockdown periods, COVID-19 tiers or locally established restrictions if reintroduced, unless Government legislation prohibits it.
Health care and critical workers displaying the locally arranged Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust pass and national parking pass issued by their employer will continue to be able to park in resident permit bays, shared use bays, Pay and Park bays and our car parks free of charge until 31 July 2021, pending any change of policy by the Government. Parking in bus stops, taxi ranks, suspended bays, disabled bays (without a blue badge), zigzags or on yellow lines obstructing pedestrians or traffic is not permitted.
Our surface car parks are open 24 hours a day. Our multi-storey car parks: Water Gardens (North) Hemel Hempstead is open daily 6am to 6pm and Lower Kings Road, Berkhamsted is open daily 7am to 1am. Although no longer mandatory, we advise customers to keep a two-metre space between themselves and other customers, to wear a mask in our multi-storey car parks, pay by phone if possible and by contactless card if not. As with touching any other street furniture, we recommend washing or sanitising your hands after using the Pay and Park machines. Lines have been marked around the Pay and Park machines in our car parks to help maintain social distancing. For more information about our car parks, including location, prices and maximum stay, please visit our car parks page.
