Motorists will soon be able to enjoy up to 15 minutes of free parking across the borough, as part of a new trial aimed at boosting Barking and Dagenham business.
Anyone parking in a pay and display car-park will not be asked to produce or buy a ticket before a quarter-of-an-hour has elapsed.
Cllr Laila Butt, cabinet member for crime and enforcement, said: “We thought we would trial a new project aimed at helping shoppers save some money and at the same time boost local businesses.
“We hope our new approach pays dividends for drivers and shop keepers.”
Those wanting to stay more than 15 minutes can pay for a ticket through RingGo so they do not have to return to the car park.
