Housing Estates Permits

Information on resident and visitor parking permits for residents who live on a housing estate.

What has changed

Following a comprehensive review of current parking enforcement on Council-owned housing estates, the Council recommended the introduction of Traffic Management Orders (TMOs) to enforce parking restrictions on housing estates, where enforced parking is required.

On 14 July 2021, subject to a public consultation that ran from 7 September to 12 October 2021, Mayor and Cabinet approved the introduction of Traffic Management Orders (TMOs) to enforce parking restrictions on housing estates, where enforced parking is required.  

Parking enforcement lets housing estate residents park close to their homes by restricting the availability of spaces to other road users and only allowing permit holders to use the parking provision. For some estates, this will include new facilities on housing sites, such as cycle hangers and Electric Vehicle Charging Points (EVCPs), if applicable.

For the current housing estate parking sites that are moving to the TMO arrangements, the cost of permits will remain unchanged in the first year after introduction. A review of the parking charges will be undertaken within the first year following implementation of the TMO arrangements.

Resident permits

You will need to buy a Housing Estate Residents permit using the Council’s online parking permit system. If you haven't used it before you have to create an account. 

We will send reminder emails to all Housing Estate Resident Permit holders before your permit runs out.

The ‘Housing Estate Permits’ PDF contains a list of current housing estates that require a Housing Estate permit and their Estate Codes.

From 1 April 2024, our prices increased by 7.7% in line with inflation. 

Blue Badge holders

In line with Lewisham’s boroughwide policy, residents with a Lewisham-issued Blue Badge, can apply for a free Disabled resident parking permit. 

Visitor permits

If you have bought a book of daily permits, these will be valid until used.

Visitors vouchers can be purchased by residents without a parking permit, but we may still need proof of address to verify your details.

After this, you will need to purchase any future visitor permits by calling 020 8787 5397, emailing Lewisham Parking or writing to us at the following address:
