As the country is moving out of the current National Lockdown, in line with recent changes in the Government’s guidance relating to the Covid-19 critical care worker parking pass scheme, which was introduced in April 2020 to help and support NHS staff and critical key workers, a decision has been made to withdraw this concession from 21 June 2021.
Therefore, as of 8.00am on 21 June 2021, the MHCLG parking pass NHS/critical key worker parking exemption will no longer be valid in any car park or on street location and the applicable parking tariff will need to be paid, or season ticket obtained.
We have a duty to enforce vehicles that are seen to be parked illegally in pay and display car parks, on-street parking bays and any other roads where parking restrictions apply.
A Penalty Charge Notice (parking ticket) of £50 or £70, depending on the contravention. The parking ticket is discounted by 50% if it's paid within 14 days.
For more information about parking restrictions you can visit GOV.UK website and Kent County Council's website. For further information on contravention types and the Penalty Charge Notice enforcement process visit the PATROL website.
Paying your parking ticket online is quick, easy and secure.
