NHS workers, social care staff and volunteers can now park free of charge in a Crawley Borough Council town centre car park until further notice.
The council is pleased to be able to show its support for the NHS during the coronavirus outbreak by offering free parking at Orchard Street multi-storey – a secure, 24-hour car park less than five minutes’ walk from Crawley Hospital.
Councillor Peter Lamb, Leader of the Council, said: “Nobody who is working tirelessly to help those people who are most in need – whether they work in the NHS or social care or are volunteering – should be paying parking charges.
“This is the right thing to do in this time of crisis.”
To take advantage of the free car parking all that NHS and social care staff, as well as volunteers, need to do is email email@example.com from their work email address with their:
- Vehicle registration number
- Telephone number
- Organisation they are working for.
If they only have a personal email address, they should also provide a copy of their identification badge (preferably photo ID) or volunteer identification.
Crawley Borough Council will set them up on the system and confirm by email when this has been done.
