Brent Housing Estate Parking

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Brent Housing Management are seeking to improving parking enforcement by introducing a Traffic Management Order (TMO). This will mean that the council can control parking on the estates in the same way that it does on public roads and will make parking safer, fairer and easier.

Before we make any changes, we would like to know what you think about our proposals. The following areas are under consultation (click on your area for a more detailed plan):

Why do we need to make these changes?

Vehicles parking in an unsafe and inconsiderate way blocks roads and pavements, and are making it difficult and unsafe for residents to move around their estates, as well as hindering access for the Council’s refuse collection vehicles. Residents on the estates are also finding it more and more difficult to find a space to park their car. More seriously, unsafe parking can prevent fire engines and ambulances from getting to the estates for emergencies.

How do the new controls work differently to the current ones?

Under the current system, Wing Parking (enforcement agents) are not legally allowed to access DVLA information, meaning they can only ever enforce against estates residents, not those parking there without permission. The new system will make it easier for the Council to enforce against vehicles parked poorly or inconsiderately which cause problems in the estates. These stricter controls have been proven to deter nuisance estate parking when used by other London authorities.


What are the benefits of these changes?

  • Residents should find it easier to access a suitable parking space.
  • There should be less disruption to emergency service vehicles, allowing them to respond more rapidly to issues on the estates.
  • Unauthorised vehicles will be deterred from entering the estates and parking in resident bays, which will increase parking availability for estate residents.
  • Unobstructed footways will improve parking accessibility and safety for pedestrians, the mobility impaired and pedestrians with pushchairs.
  • There should be an improvement in access for Council services, including a reduction in missed waste collections.

See our FAQs for more information about the proposals.

We will also be holding Virtual Drop-in sessions for each location enabling residents to speak directly to project managers and get a more detailed understanding of the proposals. For more information and to register your attendance, see our Key Dates tab on the right hand side.
