Extra parking for disabled drivers and parents

Published Wednesday, 02 October 2013

A whole floor of a multi storey car park will be dedicated to disabled motorists to make it easier for them to get to the shops, Enfield Council has announced.

The changes, at Palace Gardens multi-storey car park, will mean there will be 27 car parking spaces where disabled people can park completely free of charge on the lower level of the car park so the shops are easily accessible for them.

The increase in disabled parking in the town centre will be supported by the introduction of 26 more parent and toddler spaces in the car park across all the floors to give parents extra room while trying to get their little ones into (or out of) their vehicles.

The extra parking spaces complement the changes to parking tariffs introduced by Enfield Council last month which have frozen the parking tariffs but increased the allowed parking time.;

Cllr Chris Bond, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “These measure will help all of our shoppers get into our town centres and spend their money, giving our businesses a helpful boost in the run up to Christmas.

“We’re determined to make our town centre business and shopper friendly so that it can thrive and flourish and help create jobs and opportunities for the wider community. These projects are part of a much wider plan to improve Enfield for everyone associated with it and demonstrates our commitment to finding practical ways of providing real benefits to people.”
