Parking exemptions for key workers

We are providing parking exemptions for key workers on the front line of the borough’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

This will allow key workers to park in any resident or shared use parking bay in Hackney.

This is open to workers classed as key workers in government guidance, and includes:

  • NHS workers / police
  • council workers, and contractors delivering services on their behalf (ie social care)
  • school staff
  • organisations providing support to vulnerable individuals, such as care home workers

The list will be kept under regular review, and those on it will be communicated with about any changes to the exemptions in operation.
