Our diesel surcharge scheme operates in all zones across the City. 

The scheme, which applies up to a 50 per cent surcharge on pre-2015 diesel vehicles paying to park is part of our ongoing work to improve air quality in Westminster.

During controlled hours, charges apply for parking in paid-for and shared use bays.

Please check on-street equipment or street signs for prices and the maximum stay limit (usually 4 hours). If you stay beyond the maximum permitted stay, you may be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice, even if payment has been made to extend your stay.

Search for your local parking zone or view a map of Westminster's controlled parking zones and residents' parking zones / sub-zones. 

The hours of control illustrated on this Controlled Parking Zones map relate to single yellow lines and pay-to-park bays only.
