A boring thread about parking permits


#1

Hello friends. This is a boring thread about parking permits.

We’ve moved, we need a residential parking permit for my gf’s car, my gf doesn’t own the car she is on a fleet insurance policy for a number of cars, when councils need proof of vehicle ownership for parking permits does the owner have to be the person applying for the permit?


#2

It depends on the council, but most of them require a specific vehicle registration number to be allocated to the permit.

Proof of use (eg a note from the employer) is usually enough in lieu of a formal ownership certificate.

Cheers friend.

So a vehicle registration document from the actual owner (her Uncle’s garage) and a note as proof of use would ordinarily be enough yeah?

I’m questioning why I clicked on this. I think it just goes to show that I really like you, Ant. I don’t own a car, I can’t even drive… I know nothing about parking permits. Yet here I am :heart:

Good luck with everything.

You’re a wonderful person, have a terrific evening x


#6

Fantastic atmosphere in this thread.


#7

Think it could end up turning into a real party in here!


#8

Can I have a bit of a moan in here Ant or will that soil the atmosphere somewhat? Happy to leave you whipper-snappers to it, with your music.

Did this getting a company car permit (although different boroughs do it diff. and I think some people are charged a extra fee in some places) and it was:

vehicle registration document (logbook) with the registered owners details, car insurance doc with person applying for permit on as named driver, proof of residency and a letter explaining the situation (e.g. why a permit is required for a car you are not registered as owner)

Go wild, I’ve said many times that a thread ceases to be the property of it’s author as soon as it’s posted. A thread can veer in any direction once it’s live in the community, it’s one of the beautiful things about this music website.

Strap yourself in man! Just bought 5 day’s worth of visitor parking vouchers for £16.50 from Hackney council. Never gonna use them (for myself).


#12

That’s exceptionally helpful, thanks doubleespresso, I think you deserve a tripleespresso for how helpful you’ve been!


#13

I’ll be honest Jezza, I thought they’d cost more than that…


#14

I got 1 (one) pound off for buying them online :sunglasses:


#15

You sure know how to drive a hard bargain! (But presumably not how to drive a car into a parking space for less money)


#16

Agree with what marckee said.

I had a terrible 18 months where I needed a permit but was getting a stream of company cars- sometimes I’d have them for 1 week, sometimes 2 months but had 13 cars in 18 months, so couldnt really be getting proof of ownership and getting a new permit every time my car changed. Had to use visitor permits for the whole period which was a serious pain in the arse.


#17

Actually, I should have said “You can use one of those visitors permits for the hard bargain you’ve been driving!”

Pretend I said that instead, thanks


#18

And just like that, I’m back in the party spirit!

(As with anybody who lives in zone 2, I don’t own a car, the voucher’s are purely for the benefit of anybody who comes to visit us overnight).


#19

The good thing is here that the car itself won’t be changing so hopefully we won’t have to put up with all that, it sounds awful.


#20

It would usually, yes, but the issue is that she doesn’t have a specific vehicle to her name - instead it sounds like she is likely to be driving a number of cars.
