Residents Parking - is there a problem?


The more we ask around, the more local residents tell us about the problems they have with residents parking permits and spaces.

Camden are reviewing the hours of operation of the residents bays and also the useage of the pay & display bays oin the CA-D parking controlled zone.

If you have a car, live in the Holborn area, and have trouble finding residents parking bays, read on.

We are constantly hearing from locals that they've had to drive round for too long looking for somewhere to park and often end up at least 4 blocks away from their homes.

We have been asking Camden to make residents bays in our area 24-hour and 7 days a week so that weekend and evening shoppers for Covent Garden and the West End can't take our spaces.

With the help for the past two years of our councillors Julian Fulbrook and Awale Olad, Camden finally conducted a residents parking review. As a result Camden now know that most of us want 24/7 residents parking bays. BUT, instead of bringing these in they are planning another consultation.

We'll let you know when this happens but PLEASE make sure your voice is heard. If enough of us dont speak up we'll be stuck with inadequate residents parking.

Do you have a problem with available spaces in residents bays?  Do you see under-used pay & display bays?  Let us know.  It's important.
