NHS and social workers

We are providing free parking for NHS staff and social care workers during the coronavirus pandemic. This enables them to park in on street parking bays and council owned car parks without having to worry about cost or time restrictions.

These workers need to display either their Key Worker Letter or a copy of their work identification (with any sensitive information removed) in their windscreen or, when parking in barrier car parks, buzz the intercom and show their pass.

Parking enforcement

We are enforcing parking restrictions. Please ensure you park safely and legally.

It is important to keep the city moving and ensure essential services and supplies can be accessed by people most in need of support. We will continue to monitor the situation in line with government advice.


Other permits

To keep Brighton & Hove city moving and to allow daily life to take place we offer many types of permits.
