When the TMC managed Tabard Gardens parking was free but since southwark took over charges were introduced although this doesn't seem to deter casual parking by non-residents. Is illegal parking enforced?
Does southwark have difficulty letting it's garages? There is a permanent ad on display on the notice board in my building offering such lets and this morning received a leaflet in the post offering garages for parking and storage.
Turned on its head, one could take the view that one had been lucky in having free parking for two cars until now (and, indeed, can still have free parking for one car even now). It's a benefit that few others have, in this part of town.
I had no idea it was only 20p a day for a second car permit.
That means that a flat parking two bikes in Southwark's BikeAway-run locker scheme (£35pa is the ongoing cost) is paying almost the same amount as a flat parking two cars!
I thought Southwark was supposed to be increasingly pro-cycling :-/
