Parking zones and parking bays

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – parking

We have suspended all parking charges for NHS workers and other visiting staff carrying out vital work in relation to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Penalties will not be issued – nor enforced, if issued inadvertently – to anyone who parked safely without causing obstruction on crossings and zig-zags or restricted areas, if they can show they work for the NHS.

Contractor parking permits

Contractors who need to park within controlled parking zones or permit parking areas while working on contracts with Thurrock Council, may be eligible for a contractor parking permit.

This permit allows contractors to park their vehicle for up to 3 hours in a permit holders only bay within the zone or area. They can also park for up to 3 hours within a shared-use parking bay. This is a bay where resident parking permit holders and motorists displaying a valid pay-and-display ticket can park.

This permit does not give the right to park in any parking place, and cannot be used to park on single or double yellow lines within the zone or area.

Contractor permits are only valid for the duration of the contract and must not be used for any purpose other than while work on contracts with Thurrock Council.

Applications must the current contract number and be accompanied by a vehicle registration document or lease agreement.

Forms can be returned by post and will normally be processed within 2 weeks of receipt.
