Havering residents can continue to park for free to support local shops until the end of this week. 

The current free parking allowance around the borough, announced by Havering Council on April 12, will end this Sunday.  

The council suspended all parking fees in council-run car parks and on-street parking bays to help high streets reopen safely as the coronavirus lockdown eases. 

From May 9, there will still be free parking in all council car parks on Sundays, plus one hour of free parking in on-street parking bays. 

The council said if residents pay via the RingGo App in council car parks, they will receive a 20 per cent discount.  

The Havering Heroes permits scheme will still be in place until the end of June.
