Parking charges

Parking charges

We are required to advertise any notice of variation of parking charges and other charges in a local newspaper, such as the East London Advertiser.

In accordance with the notice of variation of parking charges the Council in exercise of its powers under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and the Local Government Act 1985 duly advertised the changes in the East London Advertiser on 11 March 2021 that as from 09 April 2021 the charge for the issue of Permits and other charges were to increase.

Diesel vehicle

There is growing evidence of the harmful effect's diesel fumes can have on health and life expectancy. Pollution in Tower Hamlets is at unacceptable levels. For this reason, the council has a supplementary charge for diesel vehicles to park in the borough to address the impact of diesel fuel on poor air quality and health and to encourage a move away from polluting vehicles.

How permit charges are calculated

The permit price is usually worked out by the vehicle’s CO2 emissions to give the price band, duration and appropriate surcharges. For vehicles registered before 1 March 2001 charges are based on the engine size.

When you apply online the system automatically works out the price. You can check this on the UK Registration Certificate or DVLA website.

As an example, please see the table below.
