Councillor Geoff Brown, portfolio holder for transport, said: “We need residents to stay at home and stay safe, now is not the time for anyone to worry about parking charges and issues associated with coin handling.

"We also want to make it as easy as possible for essential workers to get to and from work and removing parking charges is one way in which we can support them during this critical time.

“It is really important, however, that people always remember to park considerately and continue to follow government guidance about avoiding any unnecessary travel.”

Anyone with questions about the new parking arrangements should email the Council’s Parking Services team in the first instance parking@cornwall.gov.uk.

The team will aim to respond within 10 working days. If you don’t have access to email or the Internet please call 0300 1234 222.
