Parking Zone D

I wondered if anyone could give me some advice about residents parking in zone D. How easy it is to park in the residents bays/mixed use bays around Grange Gardens during the day and at 6-7pm in the evening? Awful or really really awful?!

After 6pm you can park in Southover school car park for free. It's opposite the Grange.

That's good news, any idea what time you have to be gone in the morning? Can you park there at the weekend too?

The school car park is for teachers and visitors, so you'd be advised to be gone by 7.30 am latest. But I've never had any problem with parking near the Grange and there are plenty of mixed bays if you need to pay. If you're a resident, even less problem - more spaces to choose from

You can park there weekends. I often park there Saturday afternoons when going to football. There is a sign there advising when anyone can park, but I can't remember the times. Check it out.

Thanks for your advice. I'll check out Southover school car park. Any experience of using the residents bays on/near Garden Street? I wondered if they are usually full by 6pm - there doesn't appear to be many of them for the number of houses!!

Parking is non-existent any time of day the closer you get to the station and the surgery (St Andrew's Place end). Nearer to the Grange I can always find somewhere to park during the day (unless it is auction day) but may have to drive around the block a couple of times. Weekends is usually OK for parking in Zone D.

We lived in Elm Grove for 7 months and never failed to find a parking space within a reasonable distance. Friday night wing-mirror bending along Garden Rd/Southover Rd was a bit of an issue, though.

If you want a permit in zone HS, (or any zone you don't live in) I have discovered from a friend of mine that you don't have to actually live in the zone to get a permit. The Council has been handing them out to residents in Zone B and there is no reason why everybody can't apply.

yep, I think it is a little secret that ESCC would rather we didn't know about. What I have been told is that they are giving out permits even if you aren't a resident in a zone, and that anyone can apply. If you can't get one, you just ask why they are giving them to people in zone B and say you want the same permit.
