Wiltshire-based parking and traffic technology company Chipside has been working with local authorities to provide free parking for NHS and critical care workers in council-owned car parks and on-street parking spaces. 

“Key workers are carrying out critical work for society, with some risking their lives to fight the coronavirus outbreak. We believe nothing should be a barrier to the job they are doing – least of all parking."

Chipside has worked with several local authorities to develop free emergency digital parking permits for NHS staff and social care workers on its MiPermit platform.
