From Monday 27 April 2015 Havering Council is tidying up some of its car parking charges outside of Romford and at on-street pay and display sites (not meter tariff sites) across the borough, to extend the free parking period and reduce the cost of parking for up to two hours.
The aim of having a period of free parking outside Romford was to encourage people to visit our high streets and support local businesses
The new parking charges will apply for Havering Council’s car parks, outside Romford Town Centre.
The new schedule of charges is as follows:
- Up to 30 minutes – FREE
- Up to 2 hours – £1.00
- Up to 3 hours – £2.00
The pay and display machines will be set to allow a maximum of two free 30 minute periods in any given 24 hour period – one am and one pm.
The remaining tariff structure is unchanged and can be seen here.
Parking remains free on a Sunday and there is no need to display a ticket on Sundays.
Improved signage will explain the new charging system.
Under new laws brought in earlier this year, parking enforcement will only be considered 10 minutes after the ticket has expired, giving motorists a ‘grace period’ to return to their vehicle.
