Refuse collections will continue as normal over the Easter holiday. Parking will be free in marked out parking bays in all of the borough’s parking zones on Good Friday and Easter Monday.

There will be no change to your refuse collection day - you can find your recycling and waste collection day by keying in your street here. 

Motorists will not need to purchase a pay and display ticket, pay-by-phone or display a parking permit if they use marked out bays.  

However, they should avoid yellow lines as these restrictions will still be in force. This is because yellow lines are normally situated at places where parked vehicles could cause a hazard or an obstruction. 

Drivers who leave their cars in parking bays that are only partially available throughout the day should check the signs carefully to avoid staying there when the yellow line restrictions come into force. These bays are mainly found in bus lanes. 

Motorists who obstruct driveways or park unlawfully in doctors' bays or mandatory disabled bays may also be penalised and drivers should not park across dropped kerbs. 

Motorists using the car parks in Battersea Park and in the Burr Road car park adjacent to King George’s Park will still need to buy a pay and display ticket or pay-by-phone on the two bank holidays. There is no free parking at any time in these car parks. 

Normal parking rules will also apply on the borough’s housing estates - drivers who do not have a valid parking permit should not use these parking spaces. 

Residents are reminded that barbecues are not allowed in the borough's parks or open spaces. Read more
