Parking fines to deal with disruption during town regeneration works


Parking wardens will be imposing no parking rules in front of dropped kerbs and on raised areas of the road in Hemel Hempstead town centre from Monday.

The rules will affect those parking at pedestrian crossings and access points in Bridge Street, Waterhouse Street, Marlowes and the High Street. A Dacorum Borough Council spokesman said: “We’re cracking down on inconsiderate parking to prevent disruption during construction for improvement works.

“It is an offence to park across dropped kerbs and raised areas of the road. If you do park at these points you are liable for a penalty of £70.”

Steve Barnes, parking services team leader advised: “Always check for parking restrictions and that you are not blocking access routes or parking across dropped kerbs or raised areas of the road before leaving your vehicle.” Visit for more.
