On-street parking in Bath

Car parking charges - service update

Parking charges for residents and visitors were reintroduced on 4 May 2020 for Bath & North East Somerset Council car parks and on street paid for parking, after pausing initially due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Residents will need a valid permit if using residents’ parking bays. 

NHS staff, health and social care workers and NHS volunteers are being encouraged to apply via their employer for a new Government national parking pass so that they can park for free with no time limits when on duty during COVID-19. On-street parking places where the national permit can be used are limited to pay and display bays, limited waiting bays and permit holder bays and zones. All other groups must make a payment and there are no further concessions available.
