Estate parking permits

Apply for a parking space on a housing estate

Please Note: Internet Explorer is not supported by the system required to make an application.

Anybody can apply to rent a parking space on one of Camden’s housing estates. We prioritise applications and allocate spaces as follows:

  • Tenants and leaseholders resident on the estate – blue badge holders take priority
  • Blue badge holders on neighbouring estates
  • Tenants and leaseholders on neighbouring estates
  • Tenants and leaseholders on all other estates
  • Business, private lettings and staff

We will contact you within twenty working days from the receipt of your application to discuss it further.

An estate parking space is rented on a license. Either party can terminate the license with a notice period of seven days.

If you are resident on an estate managed by a tenant management organisation, you will need to apply for and/or renew your permit with them and will not be able to apply online.

If no spaces are available when you apply, your name will be added to a waiting list.

Your rent account must be in credit when applying for an estate parking permit.

Lost permits will incur a £20 admin charge for replacement.

Swapping bays will incur a £20 admin charge.

Visitor permit and scratch cards

Apply for a visitor e-permit

Daily permits cost £5 and weekly permits cost £10.

Tenants and leaseholders can also apply for a visitor permit by calling 0207 974 4444 and giving 48 hours’ notice. Payment is made by credit or debit card. Parking permits ordered over the phone are sent in the post using first class delivery.

On estates which use access keys and fobs, a £50 deposit is required which is refunded when the keys are returned.

If you are visiting someone on a Camden housing estate, the person you are visiting must give you a visitors parking permit. Permits must be displayed in the windscreen of the vehicle.

Scratch cards

Residents on the Alexandra & Ainsworth estates can buy visitors permits as scratch cards. A single scratch card is valid for three hours and costs 50 pence.

Scratch cards must be clearly displayed on the windscreen of the vehicle.

Scratch cards can be ordered over the phone and will be sent out using first class delivery.

For scratch cards, call 020 7974 4444

Parking charge notice

If your vehicle is parked on a Camden housing estate without clearly displaying a valid permit, we will issue you with a parking charge notice (PCN) of either £80 or £100 depending on the circumstances of the offence. This must be paid within 28 days of the notice being served.

A reduced charge of £40 or £60 is payable if the PCN is paid within 14 days.
