Camden estate parking changes
Why do we want to make these changes?
People parking in an inappropriate and inconsiderate way on our estates often block roads and pavements, making it difficult and unsafe for people to move around as well as stopping rubbish trucks getting through. In some cases, unsafe parking has stopped fire engines and ambulances from getting to emergencies on our estates.
Some of you have told us that if you have a parking permit, it is becoming more difficult to find a space to park. In 2020, Camden made a Traffic Management Order for the Maiden Lane Estate and the changes have been successful in deterring motorists who do not have a right to park in the estate. These changes will help reduce congestion and pollution by preventing non-permit holding motorists from parking on the borough’s estates for free. The proposed changes should therefore create more parking space for the people who need it most.
As part of our commitment to improving the environment we live in and tackling climate change, we want to encourage people to use cleaner, heathier, and more affordable forms of transport and where possible will look to introduce provisions such as cycle storage, Electric Vehicle (EV) charging and car club parking.
