Council confirms Forest parking plans

Forest of Dean District Council is committed to the recovery of the district's high streets and has made some amends to its parking rules in response.

It has pledged:

  • Free parking on Saturdays until 1st September
  • Five free short term (up to 30 minutes) parking bays per town
  • Continued free parking for NHS and registered care workers

As any shortfall in parking revenue will need to by met by the Forest of Dean council tax payer, the council has said it cannot subsidise parking indefinitely. it will carry out a further review of parking in the late summer or early autumn, once the pressures of Covid-19 have eased.
