Solihull Council has announced it will be suspending some parking enforcement services over the Jubilee bank holiday weekend

Some parking enforcement measures in Solihull will be suspended by the council over the Jubilee bank holiday as more than 50 street parties are held across the borough.

Fines will not be issued to those parking in residential areas where single yellow line restrictions apply.

Roads with single yellow lines normally indicate parking and waiting restrictions during certain times of the day.  Road signs usually accompany them with specific rules, but these will be suspended over the bank holiday.

Over 50 street parties are planned in Solihull for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee extended weekend. The temporary relaxation of parking rules will apply from 8am on Thursday, June 2, with normal services resuming from 8am on Monday, June 6.

Roads will be closed as people take to the streets to celebrate, but Solihull Council has asked residents and visitors to comply with the highway code during this time. It also reminds people to not park close to road junctions and to keep access free at all times.

Solihull residents are advised that double yellow and red route parking restrictions will remain in place and will be enforced where necessary. The council is anticipating an increase in traffic over the long weekend and is keen to make sure roads are not blocked.

Councillor Ken Hawkins, Cabinet Member for Environment and Infrastructure, issued a statement on the suspension. He said: “It’s important that residents can meet with families and friends to join in with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

“By suspending the single yellow line parking restrictions over the long bank holiday, we can create space for motorists to park safely without fear of receiving a fine. I hope everyone enjoys their celebrations and has a great Jubilee.”

Meanwhile, the council confirmed to the Local Democracy Reporting Service that bin collections in Solihull and Birmingham will be running as normal over the weekend.
