Romford Market to open on Sundays as part of plans to help local businesses recover

Havering Council is considering reintroducing parking charges 

The Leader of Havering Council has announced a series of measures to help businesses recover following the coronavirus lockdown. 

Councillor Damian White revealed there will be a new “shop local platform” during a Full Council meeting last night. 

He said it will “allow local traders across Havering to sell their products on a wider scale.”

Meanwhile, it has also been revealed Romford Market will soon be able to open on Sundays. 

Cllr White explained this will create a “vibrancy in Romford and a focus for people to return.” 

Councillor Damian White praised council staff for working hard to support businesses

During the Covid-19 lockdown, Havering Council stopped charging people for on-street and off-street parking and did not enforce parking regulations.

“This meant we were able to remove anxiety and worry from our residents,” continued Cllr White. 

“We are now engaging with our residents to determine the right time to bring back charging and a wider enforcement regime.” 

However, he explained people who pay for parking using the parking app may receive a larger discount in the future. 

It is hoped this will also encourage residents to shop locally after the removal of free 30 minute parking reduced footfall in Upminster and Hornchurch last year.  

Time 107.5’s Mark Dover will be interviewing Cllr White between 12pm and 1pm on Monday, 15 June.
