Residential streets in the surrounding areas of the town centre, near railway stations etc, will often attract commuters, shoppers and other visitors to park free of charge for long periods of time. This results in local residents facing difficulties parking near their homes, especially if on-street parking availability is limited.
Although there is no legal right for homeowners to park on the public highway directly outside their property, controlled parking zones have been introduced to assist those living in the area.
The purpose of these zones is to provide a set of waiting restrictions over a specified road network, which remain enforceable all year round including Bank Holidays.
There are several means of controlling and collecting charges from non-residents parking in the zone:
Residents can apply for a parking permit to display on their windscreen exempting their vehicle from the waiting restrictions in a specified road or area.
If you would like a permit, please complete the form below and return it with proof of vehicle ownership (vehicle registration document / insurance cover certificate), proof of residency (dated within 3 months) and appropriate fee.
The application will then be processed and the permit posted to you accordingly. Should you change your vehicle it is essential that you let us know and supply up to date vehicle proof, as residents permits are specific to the vehicle as stated on the ownership documentation.
You will receive a Penalty Charge Notice (parking ticket) if observed displaying a permit with invalid vehicle details. Please note the old permit must be returned otherwise a £10.00 administration fee will be incurred.
Please note that parking within the following roads at Faversham is only permitted for vehicles displaying either a valid Zone B permit or a valid 1 hour parking voucher (a maximum of two vouchers may be displayed at any one time, permitting parking up to 2 hours): Newton Road, Saxon Road, Roman Road, Norman Road and Stone Street.
Time plates erected in each area verify the restriction and advise non-permit holder motorists that parking vouchers may be purchased from the following outlets:
Vouchers are charged at 80p each, or alternatively, available in books of ten vouchers.
