  • Harrow residents can enjoy an hour’s free on-street parking from 1 August 
  • Means more time to shop, eat and drink without worrying about time running out

Great news for Harrow residents and businesses! From Monday 1 August, residents can enjoy an hour’s free on-street parking across all our high streets in the borough.

The hour-long free parking will give people more time in their local shops, restaurants and cafes without worrying about parking costs.

At the same time, it will support our local economy thrive again following the pandemic.

From 1 August, all you need to do is enter your car registration on a parking machine (on-street only) and leave the ticket on your windscreen. It’s that simple! The hour’s free parking is only available from Pay & Display machines. It is not available at car parks.

Cllr Norman Stevenson, Cabinet Member for Business and Employment, said:

“We promised one hour free on-street parking and here it is – for residents to enjoy! While neighbouring boroughs are reducing their free parking time for residents, we have extended it from 20mins to 1 hour, and this is something to be proud of!

“But it’s not about us, it’s about helping local businesses bounce back from the pandemic, protecting jobs and creating new employment opportunities. So please make the most of this offer, shop local and support local businesses.”

The introduction of an hour-long parking is one of the of the new Conservative Administration’s priorities to put residents first and support local high streets.

Cllr Anjana Patel, Cabinet Member for Environment and Community Safety, said:

“We’re making life that little bit easier for our residents with an hour’s free parking  on street – whether they want to run a quick errand, meet friends, or have something to eat.

 
“We pledged to do this in May and I am delighted that quite quickly we have made this possible – and it’s going live in a matter of days. This is more than just about putting residents first, it’s about doing the right thing for our businesses and high streets. I know many residents and businesses will welcome this.”
