New parking restriction on Sunday & Bank Holiday for the High Street

New parking restrictions have been put in place on St John’s Wood High Street on all Sunday’s and Bank Holiday’s across the year as from 30th April 2017.

Your local Councillors have listened to the concerns of the shop owners on the High Street who have told us that they feel restrictions are needed especially on major cricket match days to help create a churn and thereby increase the flow of visitors to the shops. These restrictions mean on Sunday and Bank Holiday’s only a maximum of a 2 hour stay will be possible between the hours of 10am – 4pm on Pay-By-Phone bays although Westminster C zone permit holders will be exempt.

Marshals are to be deployed in and around the High Street especially on major match days with Penalty Charge Notices (PCN’s) issued for any vehicles overstaying this time period. 
As one High Street retailer says on this new initiative ‘Thank you to all at Westminster for effecting this much needed change which is most welcome’.
