Good morning neighbours,
I've just purchased a car thinking I will be able to park right in front of my flat, in controlled zone C1 (Bankside - 8:30AM-11:00PM Mon-Sun). However, I was refused a resident's parking permit in this zone because the council does not allow residents of "new build developments" to purchase a permit. (How is that even legal? When I pay an exorbitant council tax?)
This is a huge issue for me as I have nowhere to park now. Please can I ask if anyone knows :
- Whether I can dispute this
- A way around it
- Another permanent parking solution in Bankside ?
