Residents Parking Permits
Victoria Station (Zone V) Parking Management Scheme (PMS)
Why have a Parking Management Scheme in the Victoria Station area?
This area is currently used by a significant number of employees and visitors to the town centre all competing for parking spaces along with residents and their visitors.
The result of this is inconsiderate and dangerous parking which can be dangerous for both pedestrians and vehicles alike.
We are looking to implement the Parking Management Scheme (PMS) to improve parking priority for residents and create safer roads and highways on or around 16th July 2012
What will the Parking Management Scheme include?
The PMS will include:
- Priority parking for local people.
- A cleaner healthier environment through the restricted use of vehicles within the area.
- More accessible roads through a more efficient parking layout.
- Removal of inconsiderate and dangerous parking.
Within the Victoria Station PMS, parking places will be designated using a parking bay and marked with a sign.
The entry and exit to any Parking Management Scheme is identified as follows:
- On entering the area, signs showing the times of operation of the PMS
- Signs indicating the end of the zone.
Legal parking bays within the Victoria Station PMS, will be clearly marked on the road with Residents and their Visitors given priority. Business users will also be permitted to park in the allocated bays subject to them having the correct permit. Anyone parking a vehicle in the Victoria Station PMS during restricted hours, will only be able to do so if they are displaying a correct and valid permit.
The area extends from Short Street to the West side of Bournemouth Park Road, including the following roads:
- Bournemouth Park Road (West side only between Swanage and Southchurch Roads)
- Coleman Street
- Guildford Road
- Maldon Road
- Milton Street
- Prittlewell Street
- St Ann's Road
- Short Street (Nos 2-12 only)
- Sutton Road (between Maldon Road and Queensway)
- Swanage Road
- Wimbourne Road
When is the scheme in operation?
The scheme operates between the hours of 9.30 am and 4.30 pm Monday to Friday. On any other days and times motorists (including non residents) may park in any parking bay and on single yellow lines (but not across driveways without the property occupier's permission).
How do I apply/renew a parking permit?
