Shared Use Bays Parking Scheme
From June 15 2009, the Council will pilot a scheme to increase the availability of parking spaces for visitors to Westminster residents.
The Shared Use Bays Parking Scheme will convert approximately 500 residents parking bays to shared-use bays in the Queen’s Park, Abbey Road and Regent’s Park wards.
Visitors will be able to pay to park in these bays from 10am-4pm, for a maximum of 4 hours, so the bays are kept free for residents at the beginning and end of controlled hours.
Who can use the new bays?
Anybody can use the new bays, but they will be most useful for:
- Family and friends visiting Westminster residents
- Carers and health professionals needing access to residents homes
- Residents and visitors with disabilities
Where are the new bays located?
Abbey Road, Queen's Park and Regent's Park wards were selected to trial the scheme. These areas were surveyed and bays which were shown to be under-used during the day were selected for conversion to shared-use.
How do you use the new bays?
Shared-use bays enable resident permit holders and other drivers to use the same parking bay. Visitors must pay to park, and can only park within restricted hours.
Visitors can pay to park in the bays with:
- Pay by Phone: Use your mobile phone and credit/debit card to pay for your parking.
- Parking Scratch Cards: are easy to use and can be purchased from Westminster Post Offices and libraries. Parking cards are also available in books of 10 so residents can buy them and store them for when visitors arrive.
