Parking on non-council land

Parking in Tower Hamlets is not just about parking on public roads. There are numerous other areas that are not under the control of the council.

Housing associations

Housing associations (also known as registered providers) are run independently from councils and they therefore have different parking rules. Below you will find contact information for the larger housing associations in Tower Hamlets.

Space is at a premium in the borough, so most of the hospitals don’t have spaces for patients or visitors and they advise people to use public transport. Where possible we have provided pay and display spaces and disabled bays in these areas. Use our online maps to locate the health service facility (health and social care map) you are visiting and also the nearest pay and display or disabled bay (transport and streets map).
