Increase in Resident Parking Permit Charges


This April Camden is going to raise the cost of resident parking permits.

The declared reason for this is "to reduce car ownership, car use and motor traffic levels" and "discouraging inessential car ownership and use".

HV asked Camden for a definition of inessential car ownership and use.

Here's the response:

Inessential car use is defined as a journey that could be undertaken by other means and inessential car ownership is owning a car to undertake journeys that could be undertaken by other modes/means.

Current permit charges

Increased permit charges
