Does anyone have any experience with LBHF - Hammersmith & Fulham’s resident parking permits and how they work?
Our car is coming on Friday, so I called up and it was mentioned that I can’t get the reg or the document mentioned above until the day of the agreement (which made sense, and seemed fair, in case of last minute swaps) – I’ve just stumbled on this page from the council website which says it can take up to 20 working days to process a permit!
Do councils give you a grace period once you’ve applied for a permit or will I end up having to pay for parking every day until the permit comes through do you think? Visitor permits are £1.80/hr with parking chargeable 9am-5pm on weekdays where I live (which is the least restrictive in the borough I think).
It seems a bit mad if everyone who buys or leases a car would have to pay for potentially a few weeks of parking as presumably no-one knows their reg or has all the docs they need until they actually have a car?
Sorry for the basic questions- have never done more than rent a car in London so haven’t properly dug into how parking works until recently!
