Council suspends parking restrictions over Queen's Jubilee bank holiday weekend

Sarah Mason 2nd Jun, 2022

PARKING restrictions in residential areas across Solihull will be lifted over the Jubilee bank holiday weekend.

Solihull Council said single yellow line parking restrictions will be suspended because of the number of street parties and garden parties being held.

The suspension starts at 8am today (Thursday, June 2) and enforcement will resume from 8am on Monday, June 6.

Motorists 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.”
