Special parking arrangements during the Notting Hill Carnival 2017

The Notting Hill Carnival will mainly be taking place on Sunday 27 August 2017 and Monday 28 August 2017.

Although the event is held in the City of Westminster and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, the number of people attending has a substantial impact in respect to both vehicular and pedestrian congestion in the Kensal Green and Queens Park areas of Brent.

As in previous years, to address the concerns of local residents and the emergency services regarding traffic congestion and road safety problems during the Notting Hill Carnival, Brent Council will put in place special parking arrangements for the duration of the event.

There will be no parking or waiting at any time (including in parking bays) on the 27 and 28 August 2017 in:-

  • Banister Road
  • Chamberlayne Road, between Kilburn Lane and Mortimer Road
  • Harrow Road (Kensal Green), between Kilburn Lane and College Road
  • Kilburn Lane, the west and north sides, between Harrow Road (Kensal Green) and the south-western arm of Claremont Road
  • Mortimer Road, the north side only
  • Station Terrace, outside the Kensal Rise tube station entrance/exit

There will be no parking or waiting at any time (not including in parking bays) on the 27th and 28th August 2017 in:-

  • Kilburn Lane, the north side, between the south-western arm of Claremont Road and the north-eastern arm of Claremont Road.

To help alleviate the difficulties caused by these measures, KC zone permit holders will also be able to park within KL, KR and KQ zones on Sunday 27 August 2017 and Monday 28 August 2017. Additionally, KR zone permit holders residing in Mortimer Road will be able to park within KL and KQ zones on Sunday 27 August 2017 and Monday 28 August 2017.

In addition to the previous year’s arrangements above, the residents parking places in the KG controlled parking zone will be extended and will now operate between 8.30am and 10.30pm on 26, 27 and 28 August 2017.
