Locations of parking zones
Types of Controlled Parking Zone
There are two main types of parking control: all-day restrictions and one-hour restrictions, and a Controlled Parking Zone can be made up of a mixture of the two.
Our Housing and Community Services Department is responsible for their design, operation and regular reviews.
One hour visitor permits are only valid in these areas.
They are not valid in controlled parking zones that operate all day.
|Zones with all day controls where one hour visitor permits are not valid.

All day zone
This operates for most of the working day (for example between 9.30am and 5.30pm) Monday to Friday. In some shopping areas, this can also include Saturday.
Bays are normally shared use being a combination of permit holders and pay and display. The time limit is often two or four hours, but there are a number of one hour 'shopper bays' in busy shopping areas.
There are also some eight hour bays around St George's Hospital in Tooting.
One hour zone
This operates for one hour per day - usually Monday to Friday. It is designed specifically to deter commuters. It will allow others to park without restriction outside the specified hour.
Residents who own or keep a vehicle may purchase one resident parking permit as well as visitor permits for use by their visitors.
Businesses may purchase business permits for vehicles which are essential for the efficient operation of their business.
Tradesmen may also purchase permits to use whilst carrying out work at addresses within a CPZ.
