Trafalgar Place: Permit Parking Consultation

Closed 19 Dec 2021

Opened 15 Nov 2021


The Council has received a petition about vehicles not belonging to local residents being parked for long periods of time in Trafalgar Place.  This extra parking pressure can make it difficult for local residents to park near their properties.  If supported by local residents, new permit parking controls could be introduced to resolve this issue.

Permit parking could be introduced to only allow vehicles belonging to local properties, including those of their visitors, to park in this area.

Signs would be displayed at the start of the road to indicate that parking past that point is for local permit holders only.  It is proposed that the permit controls would operate as part of the adjacent Wanstead D (WD) parking zone, operational from 8.30am to 6.30pm, Monday to Friday. 

By joining the Wanstead D (WD) parking zone, permit holders that live in Trafalgar Place would also be able to use their permit to park in any of the surrounding WD permit bays.

The plan below provides an overview of where these new parking controls could apply.

Many of the existing parking bays in Trafalgar Place are privately owned, they would therefore be excluded from the proposals.   A permit would not need to be displayed when parked in those private bays or when parked on any other private land.

Who can get a permit & how much do permits cost?

We are proposing that only properties within this consultation area (as shown on the plan) would be eligible for permits.

The easiest and cheapest way to apply for permits is online.  The cost of applying online for one Resident Permit, covering 12 months, is £20.  A second permit is available for £100 and any further permits cost £180.  Six-month permits are also available.  Residents may also purchase Visitor Tickets to give to their visitors at £10 for a book of 10 tickets.  Each Visitor Ticket is valid for one whole day.  Disabled badge holders and owners of fully electric vehicles may obtain their permit FREE of charge.  Any paper / postal applications for Resident permits will incur an additional admin fee of £20 per application (this does not apply to Visitor Tickets).
