Having moved last year from Lambeth to Southwark I was horrified to find you couldn't obtain visitor permits - phone calls and letters concerning this received little response. So I was delighted to hear that they're now introducing them.
However, this news arrived with notification that the permit zone is to be split into two smaller zones - a significant decrease in value for money! Whatsmore, since the leaflet was very unclear as to whether or not this meant residents with current permits had to obtain new ones - I called the office. The answer - yes you do...and just in case you thought that since you'd paid up for the year they'd send you a replacement, think again, it's up to you to find a moment to pop along to the office to exchange your existing permit for a new one before 29th April.
They better not give me a parking ticket while I'm in the office!!
