Visitor parking moves online
Published: Tuesday 25th October 11
You can now apply online for a visitor’s parking permit with the introduction of Paperless Visitor Permits (PVPs).
This means you will no longer need to visit the town hall or a library to buy a permit, and your visitor will not have to display one in their vehicle. Instead a permit is purchased online then activated before the visitor's arrival. Only Wandsworth residents can apply for the permits.
If you've got some old 'scratch card permits' still to use, don't worry - these will continue to be valid and can be used as usual.
People without internet access can continue to buy scratch cards from the town hall.
The changes are part of a range of services now available online at www.wandsworth.gov.uk, including online council tax accounts and library services. Other parking services will move online over the coming months.
Transport spokesman Russell King said:
"We want to make it easier and more convenient for our residents to access council services 24 hours a day, seven days a week - especially heavily used services such as parking.
"It's all part of the Wandsworth Challenge - which is challenging us to find innovative and cost effective way to provide services. This new online facility will save council tax payers' money because online transactions are more cost-effective."
