Sincil Bank Residents’ Parking Permit – What you need to know
A new residents’ parking scheme is set to launch in the Sincil Bank and part of the Boultham area - www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/sincilbank of the city from 1st September.
Zones included in this scheme encompass roads between High Street, Pennell Street and Portland Street, as well as roads which border Canwick Road, Sincil Bank football ground and the East West Link Road.
The aim of this scheme is to increase availability of parking for local residents, reduce commuter parking, minimise congestion, stop areas being used as rat runs and improve air quality.
For local residents, letters will be sent shortly inviting you to apply for a parking permit. Do not ignore your invite letter to apply for a permit as those without one on display in their cars will receive a parking ticket after 1st September.
If you are commuter, you will not be able to park in this area from 1st September without a valid permit. For those who historically park, but do not live in the area, City of Lincoln Council is offering a discount on the first month of parking at specific car parks in the city, with further discount for yearly season passes. Email email@example.com for more details.
For anyone who has any questions or would like help applying for a permit once invitations are sent, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or you can visit our friendly team at the Sincil Bank Community Hub at 30 Portland St, Lincoln LN5 7JX.
Your parking questions answered.
When will the scheme start?
The Sincil Bank Residents’ Parking permit scheme is due to start on 1st September. You must have your permit on display by this date to avoid receiving a penalty notice. The ambition of the scheme is to reduce traffic in the are and help us in our vision to revitalise the Sincil Bank area.
How much will it cost me?
Your first permit comes at reduced rate of £26 for the year and second permits are £52 each. All homes are limited to two permits. You may be entitled to a free permit if you receive income support or benefits or have a disabled driver blue badge. Discounts are also available for low emissions vehicles. Residents will also be eligible for one free book of scratch card per year. After this, parking scratch cards are available at £17 for ten one-day tickets for visitors. Find out more: Parking permits – City of Lincoln Council.
What do carers need to do to gain a permit?
Scratch cards can be purchased for carers; however it is the residents themselves that need to apply for these as the city services team will need to see proof of residence. The residents can then pass these to a carer if required. Find out more: Parking permits – City of Lincoln Council.
