A unique "pray and display" parking permit for drivers carrying out religious duties is being launched.
Barnet council says it will provide religious leaders with permits allowing them to park in a resident's bay free of charge when on business.
It says the scheme - believed to be the first of its type in Britain - will help "vulnerable residents in time of spiritual need".
Applicants will need to provide a letter of support from their place of worship and a brief description of the religious duties being carried out.
The council says it will also consider applications from members of a congregationwho are deemed to be on official church business, such as visiting a sick person.
