The London 2012 Games will attract large numbers of visitors to venues and their surrounding areas. The London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) have been working closely with local authorities to develop temporary parking plans to prioritise parking for local residents and businesses around all London venues during the Games.
The local council is expecting Olympic Park to attract up to 200,000 visitors on the busiest day of the Games. To prevent spectators from parking in your streets, we will be introducing a parking protection area to help you park near your home or business.
These temporary parking measures will operate from 21 June – 9 September, between 8am–9pm, Monday to Sunday. The parking protection area will include both existing parking zones and a new temporary event zone (streets with no current parking controls) within the affected area. See map for further details. view map
If you live or run a business in the new temporary event zone you will need a free 2012 Games parking permit to park in your street. You will also need parking permits for your visitors.
You will be entitled to 10 visitors' parking permits per month. This number will be reduced where controls do not last a full calendar month, as follows:
June : 4 permits. July : 10 permits. August : 10 permits. September : 3 permits
Each permit will be valid for 24 hours from the time of booking in your visitor. Please note that you will not be able to carry forward any unused visitor permits.
