We’re currently introducing a new design and are making sure everything works.
Parking and enforcement plan
The PEP presents an overview of the policy and procedural basis which will guide our parking-related decisions and presents a series of recommendations.
We aim to update it annually to demonstrate progress in implementing recommendations agreed by cabinet and also other improvements. It was last updated August 2018.
If you need clarity on any information in the PEP, please contact us.
Objectives of the PEP
The PEP 2015-20 was agreed by cabinet in April 2016 and published in June 2016, following a borough-wide consultation. To help us develop our PEP, we looked at past feedback and how other councils manage similar parking issues.
The key objectives of the PEP include:
- managing the demand for parking and prioritising according to need
- increasing the amount of people who park correctly
- maintaining traffic flow and road safety
- improving local air quality and reducing carbon dioxide emissions
- a review of parking priority according to need, with an emphasis on supporting people with disabilities, Hackney residents and local businesses
- changes to the implementation and review of parking zones (PZs)
- improvements to the management of skip / highway licences and external requests for changes to parking bays designs
- changes to permits and visitor vouchers
- greater clarity in enforcement measures
- the replacement of the companion badge with a free resident permit
PEP consultation 2015
The consultation on the draft PEP 2015-20 ran for over 16 weeks (from Monday 20 July to Sunday 15 November 2015. During this period residents, businesses and other key stakeholders were asked to comment on the policies in the draft PEP. A variety of methods were used in the consultation including; questionnaires, a consultation pack for key stakeholders, public meetings and road shows, local press, this website, and market visits.
All feedback and responses to the consultation were considered and analysed by the Council, and are described in an appendix to the report that was approved by the cabinet in April 2016.
