Religious parking

articlemain

Barnet Council’s “pray and display” religious parking permits have proved particularly popular with Jewish community representatives.

A permanent feature from the beginning of April after a successful trial, the £40-a-year permits allow those carrying out religious duties in the borough to park in residents’ bays. The council says the scheme fits its core priority of helping those in spiritual need.

Of the 48 permits issued to date, 18 have been taken up by Jewish groups, the largest number from a particular faith.
