Statement on changes to parking permits

09 March 2018

Statement from Richard Hicks Director and Deputy Chief Executive of Medway Council

We have removed the annual visitor permit as they were open to abuse and were often bought and sold on to others, which decreased the number of parking spaces available for residents.

A number of residents living in Controlled Parking Zones have raised concerns about being unable to park near their homes. We have listened to this feedback and it has been agreed that, although new annual visitor parking permits will no longer be available from 1 April, existing permits are still valid until they expire and residents will be able to buy daily permits for visitors.

We’ve increased the number of visitor vouchers residents will be able to buy each month from 20 to 50. We want to ensure residents have the opportunity to park as close to their homes as possible.

The price of Medway’s daily visitor vouchers are in line with neighbouring authorities.
