Transport for Buckinghamshire issues reminder to be considerate when parking across the County

In response to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, Buckinghamshire Council has lifted all council car park charges and relaxed many on-street parking restrictions across the county.

This move was made to help support local communities, key workers and volunteers during the outbreak.

The changes mean that all council-owned car parks across the county are currently free to use, and most parking restrictions have been lifted, including parking on single yellow lines, limited waiting areas and in pay and display bays.

Restrictions on disabled parking and on double yellow lines have remained in force for safety reasons though. Unfortunately there are some motorists disregarding these restrictions.

Parking officers are continuing to patrol the main routes, car parks and residential areas to help deal with any obstructions, and continue to issue parking tickets for improper use of a disabled parking space, with ten issued since the end of March.

Buckinghamshire Council Cabinet Member for Transport, Mark Shaw, said: “While most of the parking restrictions across the county have been relaxed, restrictions on disabled parking and for safety remain and will be enforced by our parking officers. Please be considerate when parking and do not use a disabled parking space unless you are entitled to use one.”
