COVID-19 parking and driving in the City

The Bank Junction restrictions are in force. They have not been suspended.

Parking management is an important public service for motorists and the wider community ensuring road safety and access to goods and services. During the Coronavirus outbreak it is very important that key workers who are providing essential frontline public services get to work.

Go to the Government’s Coronavirus website for information for travel and going to work.

The City of London, following recent advice from London Councils, has introduced further changes to its parking service in the Square Mile.

General parking (e.g. for businesses and key workers not providing essential public services)

Everyone should follow the Government’s advice and work from home where this is possible.

Pay & display bays

There are a limited number of Pay & Display bays in the City, which have a maximum stay of 4 hours Monday to Friday (8am to 7pm). Tariffs apply and the charges at on-street parking.

There are no payment concessions for workplace parking (other than key workers providing essential frontline services such as NHS workers) and spaces cannot be reserved.

Car parks

All day parking is available in the following car parks: Minories, Tower Hill, Baynard House and Barbican Centre. Go to parking for their locations and charges. Season tickets are available. Email the cark parks team for an application form.

There are no payment concessions for workplace parking (other than key workers providing essential frontline services) and spaces cannot be reserved. Currently no cash payments can be taken in the car parks (contactless only). Customers are asked to observe the social distancing rules.

Key workers providing essential frontline public services

Car parks

Designated key workers can park without charge in the following car parks: Smithfield and London Wall. Parking spaces are limited so priority is given to those key workers who are providing essential frontline public services such as NHS workers. Go to parking to find their locations.

To apply for a season ticket please email the car parks team, with supporting information such as a copy of your NHS work pass, letter from your employer, place of work and your vehicle registration number

Pay & display bays

For key workers who need their vehicle to carry out their duties, such as community nurses, there is free parking in Pay & Display (P&D). To apply for a dispensation please email the parking team with supporting information such as a copy of your NHS work pass, letter from your employer, place of work and your vehicle registration number.

Supporting evidence displayed in the windscreen such as a copy of your NHS work pass will be accepted but you are encouraged to apply for free parking in the car parks or a dispensation as soon as possible.

Enforcement (penalty charge notice)

Normal enforcement of parking and moving traffic restrictions apply Monday to Sunday 7am-7pm.

It is very important to comply with the parking restrictions for safety reasons and to prevent obstruction. A Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) will be issued to a vehicle parked in contravention of the regulations.

If you receive a PCN (parking ticket) but you are a key worker or provide an essential public service, please write to the address on the parking ticket as soon as possible. Providing there is evidence to show that you were undertaking your duties and providing a vital service at the time the ticket was issued, we will consider cancelling it.

Hospital, doctor, motorcycle, police and disabled bays

These bays are only for specific designated use.

Blue badge and red badge holders

Expired Red or Blue Badges will remain valid until 30 September 2020. Go to the Disabled Blue and Red Badge holders page for information on the schemes.
