Parking in your area
How to get a permit, avoid a fine and report a vehicle parked where it shouldn’t be.
We want it to be easy for you to park outside your homes. UK Car Park Management Ltd (CPM), who manage our car parking schemes, carry out regular warden patrols, ensure bays are clearly marked and put up signs advising people where they can and cannot leave their vehicles. They also issue penalty charge notices to drivers who park incorrectly.
Visitors parking is not available at all One Housing locations. Where visitor parking is available a valid scratch card must be displayed in the vehicle at all times. Visitor Scratch Cards (VSCs) can be purchased directly from CPM (£10 per book of 10). Please note that VSCs can only be purchased by One Housing residents and there is a limit of 1 VSC booklet per household, per month
VSC for One Housing's estates on "The Island" / E14 (Barkentine, Kingsbridge, Samuda & St John's) cannot be purchased from CPM. If you wish to purchase a VSC booklet for these areas, please contact One Housing on 0300 123 9966. One Housing tenants over retirement age and living in an area with visitors parking are entitled to 1x free book of VSCs per 6 month period.
Application forms can also be emailed or posted to you.

How to report illegal parking
Incorrectly parked vehicles can be reported anonymously 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Photographic evidence of any contraventions can also be submitted.
If appropriate, CPM will follow this up by sending a parking charge notice to the vehicle owner via the postal service.
How to appeal a parking penalty
Appeal a parking charge notice online or write to Payments & Collections, UK CPM, PO Box 3114, Lancing, BN15 5BR. Each appeal is assessed on an individual basis, with a decision made in 14-28 days.
If dissatisfied with the outcome, you can appeal to the Independent Appeals Service (IAS), operated by London Councils. A qualified and practising solicitor or barrister will consider the lawfulness of the charge, but not any mitigating circumstances.
If the IAS allows the appeal, the penalty charge notice will be cancelled. If refused, you have 14 days to pay the full fee of £100. The discounted early payment fee of £60 will no longer be available.
Flexible payment options are available for low income families.
Impact of changes to the Private Parking Code of Practice
We’re working with UK Car Park Management Ltd (CPM) to ensure our sites are compliant with the Government's changes to the Private Parking Code of Practice by the end of 2023.
Please note there are no changes to parking schemes at the present time. We’ll keep you updated when we receive further information.
