    Permit Parking.

    I'm trying to find out details on permit parking and what it envolves.

    I realise it permits you to park in a "zone" et but can't find any information about it specific to the on street in the UK on the net.

    What does it consist of and how many permits are you allowed per household. (i realise this could be different from council to council, but can someone point me in the right direction.
    Thanks.

    It will vary from council to council, dpending on the needs of the district (or even distinct area)

    I believe this might be yours - http://www.ashfield-dc.gov.uk (unfortunalteky it's down at the mo).

    If they're set up like most councils it should be dealt with by Env Health - probalby the licencing officer, but roles do vary.

    Correct, that's why i'm asking.

    About 30mins ago my street was a mess, cars parked everywhere.
    Some had parked with 3/4 of a car length from other cars etc

    A guy over the road asked if Zoe'll move her car. No problem, we both went out and i explained there was no where to put it.

    With a bit of thought i rolled my car forward and he's squeezed in behind me. He got out his car and said "Permit Parking would sort this". My reply was surely it wouldn't make any difference, and he said it would.

    ALL the car on the road belong to residents of the street, so as i believe they'd all have permits if the road was permit parking only. So it wouldn't make a difference.

    Right I'm with you, I thought it had been set up already.

    They are officially "controlled parking zones" and there's loads of different gen from councils all over the UK on google

    But this take you to NCC's page

    http://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/ho...rkingzones.htm

    Normally they are implemented to stop workers/shoppers parking on residential streets, an so are only usually enforcable around those times.

    anyway see for youself

    I live quite near the town centre in Reading, and every road within 2 miles of the town centre either has double yellows, or permits only. Each household gets 1 permit free, and can buy another 2 for £50 each.

    Each household also gets a book of 10 visitors permits, which are valid for 24 hours (they have scratchcard type panels on them to mark the date). You can buy more visitora permits for £10 per book of ten- up to a max of 5 books in a year.

    Apart from council vehicles, emergency services and the AA etc, nobody is allowed to park in permit bays (which is all of them).

    It does help somewhat - but as almost all households have 2 cars nowadays it is still often a mission to find somewhere to park. Although I have to wonder how hard it would be if the shoppers could park anywhere!!!
    0-60 in 6.5 secs and 48mpg- winner!
