It can be challenging to find a space to park in Paddington, especially if you’re pushed for time. This is because all of the area lies within a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ), meaning that restrictions are in place almost all of the time.
Parking restrictions to keep an eye out for include:
- Pay and Display bays where you can stay for 1,2 or 4 hours
- Double yellow lines, where you can't park
- Single yellow lines, where you can only park at some times unless you are a blue badge holder. Be sure to check the signs when parking.
- Where there are chevrons on the kerb this means that no loading/unloading activity is allowed to take place.
You can only use a resident permit to park in permit bays and shared permit and pay & display bays within your parking zone. Even with a resident permit you cannot park in pay & display bays (within their hours of operation), loading bays, disabled bays, doctor bays, on single or double yellow lines or in suspended parking bays.
