Parking in the snow? Here’s what to expect.
When snow falls in London, Parking Services needs drivers’ help to make sure roads are passable for plows to clear.
When there is enough snow on the ground to send out city plows, the Roads Operations team calls Parking Services to implement the Overnight Parking Ban. This means vehicles are not allowed to park on City streets, so that snow plows can make their way through to clear.
If you are pre-registered for an Overnight Parking Pass, Parking Services will contact you by phone call or email blast, to let you know that the ban is in place, and vehicles cannot be parked on city streets.
The registry itself will shut down, and no one will be able to register for overnight parking. When the ban is lifted, parking services will let those who had been pre-registered and notified about the ban, know that they may now resume overnight parking.
Can vehicles park on the street during the day, even if there is an overnight parking ban? Yes! This is because most of the snow plowing happens at night. Just remember to move vehicles so streets can be cleared overnight.
If there are complaints with respect to snow clearing in municipal parking lots, email firstname.lastname@example.org and Parking Services will respond as soon as possible.
