Parking on estates

Brent Council operates parking control on many estates which means that there may be restrictions on where people can park. Vehicles parked on the estate without proper authorisation will be subject to parking enforcement measures. This is managed on the Council's behalf by Wing Parking.

Parking permits

If you have parking control on your estate, please make sure you have applied for a resident's parking permit. Where visitor's parking is available on your estate, you must apply for the appropriate visitor's parking permit.

Apply for a parking permit through Wing Parking

Parking enforcement on Brent Council Estates 

Brent Housing Management is currently consulting on proposals to introduce a Traffic Management Order on Brent Council owned and managed estates.

Prior to transferring back to the Council, Brent Housing Partnership (BHP) contracted Wing Parking to undertake enforcement action on council owned housing estates and this has been in operation since August 2012.

In 2012, the government introduced The Protection of Freedoms Act 2012, which reduced Wing Parking’s ability to take any meaningful and effective enforcement action. The Act stopped Wing Parking from accessing information from the Driving Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) and as such, any parking tickets issued cannot be pursued unless driver’s details are already known. This has made it difficult to control parking from non-residents on council owned housing estates.

This means the current arrangement with Wing Parking is no longer operable and will not be able to continue.

Brent Housing Management is proposing to introduce a Traffic Management Order as an alternative so enforcement can continue but also be more effective on estates.
