Parking charges

Parking charges in Harrow vary depending on the where you park your vehicle, either on a street or in car parks.

One-hour free parking

You can park for free for up to one hour in a pay and display bay on a street in Harrow. You will still need to get a ticket from a pay and display machine and put the ticket in a visible location within your vehicle.

Your one-hour free parking is only available on your first visit to any on-street pay and display machine per day.

Please note that the one-hour free parking is only available from on-street pay and display machines and not in our car parks, resident permit holder bays or by PaybyPhone.

Parking for longer than one hour

If you want to park for longer than one hour you just need to pay the tariff shown on the pay and display machine depending on your parking duration.

When you add money to the pay and display machine it will show your expiry time on the screen.

For details of locations and charges please see:

Bank holidays

Regular rules and charges apply on bank holidays unless otherwise stated.

Can I park on a single yellow line?

You are allowed to park on a single yellow line only outside the hours of control. The hours of control are displayed on large signs as you enter each controlled parking zone (CPZ) or on kerbside plates if they vary from the CPZ.

Can I arrange special parking for a funeral?

Arrangements can be made for funeral director vehicles. Unfortunately we are unable to make special arrangements for private vehicles. 

Please email parking.operations@harrow.gov.uk with the location, date and times, so our parking officers are aware.

I have tradesmen carrying out works, where can they park?

If you live in a controlled parking zone, your visitors or tradesmen will be required to display a visitor parking permit to allow them to park their vehicles.

If you don’t live in a controlled parking zone, a contractor’s permit can be purchased from us at the main reception of the Civic Centre.
