Parking enforcement on bank holidays

We operate a consistent approach to bank holiday parking enforcement, which is set out below. Please note that if Boxing Day falls on a Saturday or Sunday this will not be treated as a bank holiday and normal Saturday/Sunday enforcement will apply. While not all restrictions are enforced on a bank holiday, we will enforce if there are safety and traffic flow implications or if a vehicle is causing an obstruction.

Parking restrictions in operation on bank holidays

A penalty charge notice (PCN) may be issued to vehicles parked in the following circumstances and/or locations:

  • double yellow lines
  • single yellow lines
  • where a loading ban is in operation (indicated by a single/double yellow line kerb blips and a nearby sign stating the hours during which loading is not permitted)
  • bus stops
  • blue badge bays
  • box junctions
  • banned turns
  • footway parking
  • zigzag lines
  • parking across a dropped footway
  • double parking
  • Car club bays
  • electric vehicle charging bays
  • suspended bays
  • cycleways

Note: Bus lane and moving traffic restrictions (such as box junctions and banned turns) are enforced as normal on bank holidays.
