Hi everyone,
I am soon to be moving to Signal House on Great Suffolk Street and I can't wait. However, I have a car and I'm having problems accesssing any relevant information via Southwark council. Does anyone know much does a resident's parking permit costs? Does this mean I can park on Gt Suffolk St? Alternatively, does anyone know any free to park roads in the area? I don't mind a long walk as I only use it max once a week at the weekends as it is.
I could always get rid of the car, but would like to hang on to it if possible... any info would be gratefully received!

Try the Council's Parking Shop

...if you press it, they will come.

Free to park roads. I think you need the suburbs.

I think Great Suffolk Street borders both C1 and C2 zones depending on where in Great Suffolk Street you live. You will only be able to buy the relavant zone permit that your address is listed in.
The council parking shop in Old Kent Road near Tesco will be able to help. Permits cost near the 100 per year mark but you can buy them for shorter periods.

Also, don't forget to register with TFL for your 90% residents discount for the congestion charge.

Streetcar apparently is very good for occasional use..

Thanks so much for your messages - very useful - I shall go to the parking shop and ask about resident's parking.
Cheers all

The council website has parking maps:

Signal House is in the Borough (C2) zone - there is limited permit holder parking at that end of Gt Suffolk Street, but it tends to be quite full of cars, so I'm not sure how easily you'd find a space.

There's no problem with you mentioning parkopedia, but please make sure that you disclose that it's your own website when you link to it.
