How to Avoid a Parking Ticket this Bank Holiday

Find out where you can park your car this bank holiday. Parking bays are free but yellow lines will be enforced.

Drivers can park for free for as long as they like in marked out parking bays on Monday. They will not need to purchase a pay and display ticket, nor pay-by-phone nor display a parking permit. 

But they must avoid parking on a yellow line. These restrictions still apply on bank holidays – because they cover locations where parked vehicles could be a hazard or cause an obstruction.

Drivers who leave their cars in parking bays that are only partially available throughout the day should check the signs carefully to avoid staying there when the yellow line restrictions do come into force. These bays are mainly found in bus lanes.

Vehicles that obstruct driveways, are parked unlawfully in doctors’ bays, mandatory disabled bays or that block dropped kerbways, which permit disabled people and parents with pushchairs to safely cross the road, are likely to receive a ticket and could even be towed away.

The council’s environment and community services director Tony McDonald said: “All yellow line restrictions remain in force on bank holidays if the rules would normally apply on that day of the week.

“Drivers can check the days and times these restrictions are in force by looking at the large signs that mark the entrance to all controlled parking zones or the small yellow signs attached to adjacent lampposts. These will tell you the days of the week and the hours of the day when the yellow line rules will be enforced.

“If the sign says that parking is restricted Monday to Friday then that will include all bank holidays that fall on those days.”

Motorists using the car parks in Battersea Park will still need to buy a pay and display ticket or pay-by-phone on the bank holiday. There is no free parking in the park at any time.

Schubert Road Neighbourhood Watch Notice Boards

imageAs many of you will have seen – the Schubert Road Neighbourhood Watch Notice Board – has now been in place for a couple of months now and we’ve had some great feedback.

We hope that this will be a great way to share information to all local residents – especially those not online. Please let us know if you think of anything which you feel would be useful to put up here.


East Putney Police

We’re meeting the Police tonight to discuss issues raised by local residents…the list so far is as follows…

1) ADT kids loitering on the corner of Keswick Road and the Upper Richmond Road – on their way to and from school. Large groups of teenagers can be very intimidating.

2) Dog excrement.

3) Ineffective lighting on Oakhill Road.

4) Hoarding problems reported in one area of East Putney.

Some of these issues maybe for the council rather than the Police but all of these issues can have an effect on the area as a whole.

“Crime will not flourish in a community that cares.”

Any other ideas please let us know by 7pm tonight and we’ll bring this to the attention of our wonderful East Putney Police team.
