Full parking enforcement to resume from 29 March

22nd March 2021

Three Rivers District Council will resume normal parking enforcement from 29 March as the national 'stay at home' order ends. 

The council relaxed normal parking arrangements in late December 2020 in response to the continuing pandemic and national lockdown. Parking enforcement was also suspended during the first lockdown in March 2020 to support residents, the public and businesses in response to the ‘stay at home’ restrictions. 

Enforcement action has only been taken against vehicles that have been parked dangerously, blocked junctions, or caused an obstruction.

From 29 March, motorists will need to hold a permit or visitor voucher when parking in a permit bay and will need to purchase a pay and display ticket when parking in a pay and display car park. Permit holders and visitor voucher holders are no longer able to park on yellow lines during restricted times. 

To compensate for the three months reduced service, existing permits will be extended by three months at the permit renewal time. If permits have expired during this period then permit holders will be contacted to renew their permit and this will also be extended.

Health care and critical workers displaying the national parking pass issued by their employer can continue to park in permit bays and pay and display bays in car parks free of charge.

Any enquiries about parking enforcement should be directed to Hertsmere Borough Council which provides the parking enforcement service on behalf of Three Rivers District Council. Call 020 8207 7422 or email
