Croydon Council has announced that restrictions in parking bays and Council car parks are to be relaxed on specific days over the Christmas and New Year period, enabling people to visit local shops and friends without having to pay to park on those days.
The whole borough will be free of parking enforcement on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
Additionally, there will be no enforcement of the usual parking regulations in council-run car parks on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. On these two days, there will also be no enforcement of the usual parking regulations in on-street parking bays within the central Croydon Controlled Parking Zone and regulations will be relaxed in all other zones after 5pm (but yellow-line restrictions will remain in place).
All in all, a very welcome announcement!
