Last month Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council (WHBC) paused its parking enforcement for all resident permit schemes until further notice.

But the council says parking on double yellow lines, verges, and footways will still be enforced in residential areas to ensure access for essential services.
“To ensure that we protect road users, vulnerable residents and those providing essential services, we’ll continue to enforce double yellow lines, obstructive or dangerous parking, disabled parking bays, loading bays and time-limited parking bays in on-street parking.
“We are not enforcing our car parks, resident permit/voucher schemes and single yellow lines until further notice.”
Resident permits will be extended during the pause. Those who subscribe to the scheme are advised not to use any visitor vouchers at this time.
“Existing resident parking permits expiry dates will be extended by us, by the number of days we do not enforce for. You can still purchase new resident permits for household vehicles you have that requires a permit once parking restrictions restart.”
The latest updates will be published on the WHBC site.
