Parking on Housing Estates
We manage parking on housing estates through a variety of different types of permits:
- Residents' parking permits
Our standard form of parking permit, applicable to most users, enables the permit holder to park in any available bay on the estate (except those specifically designated for visitor or disabled parking). Each estate-parking zone has a three letter code that is displayed on the signs and on permits (for example, HDC for Henry Dickens Court).
In addition to parking bays, we also have lock-up garages available on some estates. These must be used purely for the purposes of parking vehicles and not for general storage.
If you have any rent arrears, you will not be able to apply for a parking permit or garage until this is cleared in full.
Use our Residents' Parking Application form to apply for parking and see the current charges.

- Disabled Parking Permits
If you are an estate resident and hold a current Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea purple disabled person’s badge, we will provide you with free parking, in a dedicated bay which is convenient for you to access. This bay will be marked out as a designated disability parking bay.
Use our disability parking application form to apply for a disabled parking bay:
For those residents with carers, or other multiple regular visitors, we can provide an annual multi-registration permit for several vehicles; but only one vehicle can use the permit at any one point in time. This type of permit is free, but you must provide evidence of need when you apply.
Use our multi-reg parking application form to apply for this type of permit:
- Visitor parking
All households are entitled to up to three days' free visitor parking per month. These permits are issued as a scratch card for use only in the designated visitor bays marked ‘VIS’ (if available) on a first come, first served basis. If there are no designated visitor parking bays available on an estate, visitors can use the permit to park in a visitor bay on another nearby estate, where practical. If there are no visitor bays available, unfortunately the visitor will have to make other arrangements.
Even if a resident does not have an annual permit, they still have an entitlement to free visitor parking. The visitor scratch cards are available upon request to all Housing Management estate households. The Neighbourhood Resident Services Team will process the request from either our office in Blantyre Street or Kensal Road, so please request your scratch cards in advance if you think you might need them
On most estates, parking controls are managed by Civil Enforcement Officers, who will issue a parking ticket to any vehicle which is parked without displaying a valid permit or outside of a designated parking area.
Visit the parking enforcement webpage for further details.
Electrical Vehicle Charging
We do not currently have any on-Estate electrical vehicle charging available to our residents, however, we are currently looking into this as a priority.
If you would like to register your interest in using on-Estate electrical vehicle charging please let us know by emailing your name, address, vehicle registration, make and model to [email protected].
