Shoppers in Harrow can now take full advantage of 20 minutes free parking – available across the borough at all on-street parking areas.
The council has completed the installation of new and upgraded machines which include alpha numeric keypads requiring motorists to enter their car registration number in order to receive 20 minutes free parking. Each vehicle registration will be entitled to one free 20 minute parking anywhere in the borough once a day.
Cllr Keith Ferry, portfolio holder for business, planning and regeneration said: “I am pleased that free parking has now been officially rolled out across the borough which will benefit both residents and businesses in Harrow. We are committed to supporting our residents and local businesses which is why we pledged to provide a period of free parking across the borough. This new system helps local businesses attract customers who want to stop for short periods to buy items such as bread and milk.”
