As the country is moving out of the current National Lockdown, the temporary relaxation of parking restrictions, allowing residents and businesses to park in our off-street car parks while displaying a valid parking permit, will end in line with the government’s next phase for relaxing Covid restrictions; i.e. 12 April 2021.
Therefore, from 12 April 2021, any vehicle parked in one of the Council’s pay and display car parks will be required to pay for parking. Failure to make payment could result in a Penalty Charge Notice being issued.
Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO)
The Borough of Maidstone off-street parking places (Variation No.2) order 2020 has been made. The following are the documentation and effects of the order.
After the consultation has ended, the results and any feedback will be looked at by the Joint Transportation Board, a cross party advisory panel of Councillors. They'll make their recommendations in a report to Kent County Council's Cabinet Member for Planning, Highways, Transport and Waste, who will decide whether to approve the proposed order or not.
