Different rules apply for parking on street (the public highway) and on estate in Tower Hamlets. On street is managed by the Council and the Highways Agency. Estate parking is managed by the Landlord who owns (or manages) the estate.
Council estates (including leasehold properties) streets and roads are managed by Tower Hamlets Homes. Housing Association's (Registered Providers) manage the parking on their estates.
On our advertised properties we will tell you what the parking availability/rules are, but please read the guidance below as this will help you make an informed choice when bidding for properties. You should also read the parking pages of the Council website.
Car Free Homes
The Council's 'car free homes' planning policy was introduced in Tower Hamlets in the late 1990s to help reduce traffic congestion and better manage the limited supply of on-street parking spaces. This initiative also helps to reduce the level of air pollution from motor vehicles and encourages more people to walk, cycle and go by public transport.
Please see full details on the Council website.
Permit Transfer Scheme
This scheme is subject to all of the Permit Transfer Scheme criteria being met by the resident. Following a review, the criteria was amended as follows:
*In the case of a homeless household who were placed in temporary accommodation outside the borough, the twelve-month period will be the twelve months prior to being placed outside the borough or, if a permit was held for less than the twelve-month period then the length of time that the family has been placed outside of the borough will also be counted towards the qualifying period.
