Lambeth housing estates parking e-permit terms and conditions

Full terms and conditions for using parking e‑permits on Lambeth housing estates.

  1. The permit is only valid for the vehicle stated on it or as registered on your online account.
  2. The permit / e-permit must be used within the housing estate it is issued for.
  3. Only residents from the London Borough of Lambeth can apply and purchase a resident permit for their address that falls within the boundaries of a Traffic Management Order (TMO).
  4. Resident permits will be issued for one year.
  5. For your address to qualify as your 'main residence' you would normally spend approximately four nights a week there and pay the relevant Council Tax.
  6. If a valid paper permit has been issued it must be clearly displayed in the windscreen of the vehicle it relates to. Failure to display may result in the issue of a Penalty Charge Notice. Where a virtual permit has been issued, there is no need to display anything. However, residents must ensure the permit application has been submitted and approved by the council. This will be evidenced by a permit reference number which is available from the permits holder’s online account.
  7. The parking of and the issuing of permits to vehicles more than 2 metres high, 1.83 metres wide or 4.8 metres long require written permission from Lambeth Housing Management.

  9. A parking permit allows the holder to park a vehicle in authorised areas on the estate; however, Lambeth Housing Management cannot guarantee the availability of a parking space.
  10. Lambeth Housing Management and its contractors/agents reserve the right to remove any vehicle parked on its property which does not possess a current road fund licence, or has a SORN declaration without the written permission of Lambeth Housing Management, or is parked in a designated no parking area, which includes yellow lines.
  11. The police or a duly authorised officer may suspend the use of parking spaces.
  12. Residents with more than a week rent arrears and leaseholders with more than one month’s service charges in arrears are not permitted to apply for an annual resident permit.  Exceptions may be made if resident has an agreement to pay off rent or service charge arrears and have kept to the agreement for six months or more. 
  13. The online processes for applying must be completed each time a permit is requested, including the renewal of an existing permit.
