Parking bays map for East Village


#1

I remember seeing a map of every parking bay in/around EV and which type they are (unloading/pay/permit/etc.) but I now can’t find it anywhere. I’ve checked some of the old threads related to parking. I think I received it from GLL before moving in but can’t find it on any of the old emails either.

Does anyone know where I would find that?

@ToddYatesUK This one? https://yonder.e20.org/uploads/default/643/cddf71303bac23fa.pdf

I’m not sure how accurate that all is. I only say that because on Scarlet Close there used to be EV visitor bays (Newham Council) but since then those signs were dug up and replaced with paid private parking signs from Gemini. I found out that Sunrise Close, Napa Close, Logan Close and Scarlet Close are private roads now, whereas it didn’t seem to be when we moved in 2014.

Street parking for residents and visitors

There is an East Village Resident Parking Zone (RPZ) enforced between 8am and 9pm, Monday to Sunday.

Sunrise Close, Napa Close, Logan Close and Scarlet Close are exempt from the RPZ as these roads are privately owned. Illegal parking here will continue to result in ticketing by East Village Management’s Parking Enforcement Company. Residents of these roads can however still apply for Newham Council-issued East Village permits to park within the East Village RPZ.

Thanks both, that is the one I was thinking of but I guess there probably isn’t an up to date map. No worries, I’ll have a wander around and see what the various signs say. Basically just trying to figure out somewhere for a visitor to park a campervan for a day.

FYI - Not sure if you’re aware but you can get a load (30 I think) of visitor parking permits from Newham Council for free. Just go on their website and apply. Each one will allow you to park for a day in the ‘EV’ resident permit bays.

Yeah I came across that yesterday, it’s only allowed if you don’t have a car registered at the address which is true for the next week at least so I applied! Not sure if they’ll arrive in time though as it says allow 14 days.

I’ve got spare if you need them

I borrowed a camper van a while ago and ended up parking in International. Weren’t any street spaces where I was prepared to leave it, but previously parked Scarlet Close

Check height limit before trying International though, and you might be restricted to ground floor if you haven’t got much clearance

Thanks, I’ll let you know if they don’t turn up, can maybe grab one from you next week. Only need a place to park it for one afternoon and evening so not too worried about where it is, hoping there’s a space near the flat. Will check out the various options though.

Hey Todd, woudl you be able to provide an update on if there are still visitor parking bags around East Village?

I’m looking to move there but if I’m unable to get parking for visiting family and friends it will be off putting

The situation is the same but parking is in increasingly high demand. There are two ways for visitors to park: council bays and private bays. As a resident you can get a book of free one-day vouchers for the council bays, but in my experience they are often full on weekends and during times when you would typical expect them to be busy. The private bays vary a bit, you can generally find one but it may not be in the closest road to your home, and you have to pay for them. I can’t remember the exact costs, it’s a few quid, depends on the duration. It’s not extortionate in my opinion but there is a cost.

There’s also the multi-stories for Stratford International station and Westfield, not sure how those are policed but have heard people say their friends parked in the station car park before.

The private bay price is pretty fair for the area, but can quickly fill up. If you are parking for a whole day or longer the cheapest and usually quietest place to park is the Stratford International Parking lot.
