Cabinet APPROVED the following measures to be introduced permanently:

  • one hours free on street parking for all customers, applicable whether payment is made via the cashless service or via pay and display machines (the free parking allocation excludes Council Car Parks and all off street parking provision);
  • Due to the continued threat posed by Covid-19 it is recommended that the Havering Hero’s permit (permitting parking in residential bays and Council Car Parks for 3 hours) is extended until the end of January 2021, under the existing terms and conditions (Appendix B)

·       That the Council’s Enforcement Agents do not clamp and or remove vehicles until such time as deemed reasonable and dependent on the status of the Covid-19 pandemic. This will be monitored and agreed between the service and Lead member going forward
