Parking charges will be reinstated in Huntingdonshire from Monday 21 September 2020 following a six-month suspension.

To assist all key workers during the lockdown period, Huntingdonshire District Council suspended parking charges on 28 March  and has continued to provide free parking throughout June, July and August to support the gradual reopening of the town centres  as part of the Council’s #ReopeningHuntingdonshire campaign.

Whilst charges are to be reinstated, parking remains free after 6pm and all-day on Sunday at all sites across the district.

The District Council has developed and invested in a new digital system by Mi Permit, which  extends payment options    enabling people to pay via a range of contactless methods; via an app, SMS, Apple/Android pay as well as cash. The reintroduction of charging includes restoring parking permits, pay and display car parks run by the District Council and on-street parking.

Charges are to remain the same as they were pre-Covid when they are reinstated, and all sites will have the option for customers to pay via their mobile phone for extra ease and convenience. The ticket machines will be cleaned regularly, and hand sanitiser will be provided at each machine.
