Car parking charges

Paying in our pay and display Car parks and enforcing town centre restrictions began on 15th June 2020.

This included the business permits and time-limited waiting restrictions that apply in Hatfield car parks and on-street in Welwyn Garden City.

Resident Permit Areas

It was really important for us during the peak of the coronavirus outbreak that we supported our communities wherever possible, and lifting parking restrictions was one of the ways we were able to do that.

As lockdown eases, and with many more businesses set to open their doors for the first time in months, we believe the time is right to restart our enforcement of resident parking permit schemes.

Traffic on our roads is increasing. Coupled with people returning to the workplace and lower than usual use of public transport, enforcement will be necessary to manage the impact on residential roads. We have also received requests from some residents to restart restrictions as soon as possible.

Our enforcement will restart from Monday 6th July. We will be extending all current resident permits by over three months to compensate residents for the time we have not enforced. This will be added to your account automatically by us and you will receive a reminder 1 month before your permit is due for renewal.
