Catford Exemption Permits Programme

We have moved the current exemptions to our online parking permit system. Catford Broadway became a Pedestrian Zone to improve the environment in Catford and the market. This involves limiting traffic to improve air quality and make it easier and safer for those visiting the market.

We are making it easier for residents, businesses and market traders to register vehicles to enter the Pedestrian Zone restriction, which will eliminate PCNs.

Please find below information regarding the details of who will be eligible to apply for an exemption for Catford Broadway. 

What exemptions apply?

Those who are eligible for an exemption are listed below.

Residents

If you live within the Pedestrian Zone, need access to your home via the restriction, and can provide the required evidence to demonstrate this, you will be eligible for a Catford Broadway Exemption Permit. Residents can enter the restriction at any time.

Residents can add up to 5 vehicle registrations to their permit, which will enable these vehicles to enter the Pedestrian Zone restriction.

We recognise you may have different delivery vehicles that must enter the Pedestrian Zone. As the maximum number of vehicles you can add to your permit is 5, you will need to remove 1 of your 5 ‘saved favourites’ each time you wish to add a new vehicle.

Businesses

If your business is located on Catford Broadway and you require deliveries, you will need to register these vehicles for an exemption permit. Delivery vehicles must be livery vehicles or commercial for delivery, and up to 5 vehicles can be added to a permit at any time.

Deliveries to businesses can only take place before 10am and after 4pm. If your delivery vehicle enters the Pedestrian Zone between 10am and 4pm, they will be liable for a PCN.

Alternative Options

Delivery vehicles are also permitted to use the loading bays on Rushey Green and Catford Road if they do not need to enter the Pedestrian Zone. There may be a time limit for these bays, therefore please check individual signage before parking.

Who Cannot Enter?

Anyone who does not hold a valid exemption permit for Catford Broadway cannot enter the Pedestrian Zone restriction. This is to mitigate the number of vehicles travelling into the Pedestrian Zone. It will avoid confusion to businesses and reduce the number of PCNs being issued.
