COVID-19 Parking

Parking

We are helping keep people safe and encourage social distancing at schools and local businesses. 

We have widened our pavements at busier locations to make them clear for people walking and created temporary cycle lanes to make getting about by bike easier. 

We are keeping traffic moving for those that need to use their cars and supporting businesses as people move around our high streets and in and out of shops. All of this helps residents stay safe and supports local businesses in Sutton.

Current Service Status

Enforcement: Normal service. CEOs should be free to do their jobs without fear of verbal or physical abuse. We ask all residents to park legally and considerately to support businesses, customers and residents.

Payment can be made by card at all car parks either at the pay station (multi storey car parks only) or by phone/internet (surface car parks only) however cash options remain available.
