What should the council do? B St (in common with lots of SE1) has a high density of flats. There'll never be enough room for half of the people to have cars.
Even if there were enough room, I'm not sure I'd say it would add anything to the area to turn it into a car park (given that I'd say that most people who live in SE1 are unlikely to be driving a car every day). Certainly a lot of the cars in the road outside our place never seem to move from one weekend to the next.
Perhaps it's unrealistic to expect to live so centrally (e.g. B St is practically IN London Bridge station) and to have a right to a parking space.
For my part, if there's room to make more parking spaces, I'd lobby the council to make them into allotments instead.
...if you press it, they will come.
