Coronavirus (COVID-19) – parking

Grays Beach car park on Thames Road, and Gordon Road (Grover Walk) car park in Corringham, are in use as coronavirus test sites and have fewer available spaces.

From 1 August 2021, NHS staff need a NHS parking permit.

Penalty charge notices

Penalty charge notices (PCNs), or parking fines, are issued when a motorist parks or drives a vehicle in contravention of the regulations. PCNs include a description of the contravention.

PCNs will generally be issued for the following contraventions:

  • parking in areas where waiting or loading restrictions are in force - restrictions normally apply to the entire width of the road (for example verges, and pavements)
  • parking at a pay-and-display ticket machine space without paying the correct amount and clearly displaying the ticket
  • parking for longer than the period for which you have paid
  • returning to the same parking place within the prescribed time
  • parking in a specially reserved bay (for example a loading place, disabled bay, resident bay, taxi rank) without authorisation
  • parking at a bus stop during prohibited hours
  • stopping in a restricted area outside a school
