Government to provide free car parking for NHS and social care staff
Local councils will offer free car parking to all social care staff and NHS workers during the coronavirus outbreak. The government will also cover the costs of providing free car parking to NHS staff working in hospitals during this time.

The changes will apply to all on-street parking and open, council-run car parks including pay and display and will suspend charges for health workers, social care workers and NHS volunteers.

Councils will set up local arrangements so NHS and care workers and volunteers can provide suitable evidence that they can display in their windscreen to ensure they avoid parking tickets.

This will ensure that in the face of this global pandemic, essential social care and NHS staff are able to carry out their vital work without worrying about paying for car parking.

Please note, we have asked further clarification from Croydon Council in this regard. We will update you as soon as we hear back from them
