The Council introduced new parking rules last year following consultation that ended in August 2021. The Parking Enforcement Plan is the primary parking policy and strategy document governing parking decisions in Hackney for the next 5 years until 2026.
The plan is wide ranging. Among other things it covers parking on housing estates, parking fees, who is eligible for permits and also proposes raising tariffs on graduated scale for more polluting vehicles, to be introduced gradually over the period of the 5 year plan. So owners of vehicles with diesel engines and/or larger engines will be charged more. There are concessions to owners/drivers of electric vehicles who will be charged less and nothing at all if the vehicle is zero polluting.
Further consultation on fees took place earlier this summer which the Council will be reviewing this Autumn. Further information can be found here; https://consultation.hackney.gov.uk/parking-services/pep2021-26/consult_view/
