Jubilee Bank Holiday – Council to suspend parking enforcement

With so many Street Parties and Garden Parties being held over the Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend, Solihull Council has agreed to suspend its parking enforcement service in residential areas where single yellow line parking restrictions apply. This will apply from 8am on Thursday 2 June and enforcement will resume from 8am on Monday 6 June.

Residents and visitors to the Borough are asked to comply with the Highway Code during this busy time and are reminded not to park close to road junctions and keep accesses free at all times.

Double yellow and red route restrictions will continue to be monitored and enforced where necessary, to ensure the anticipated increased movement of traffic over the Bank Holiday weekend can do so safely and without unnecessary delay.

Councillor Ken Hawkins, Cabinet Member for Environment and Infrastructure, said:
“It’s important that residents can meet with families and friends to join in with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. By suspending the single yellow line parking restrictions over the long Bank Holiday we can create space for motorists to park safely without fear of receiving a fine. I hope everyone enjoys their celebrations and has a great Jubilee.”
