Parking and garage applications

Starting your application

Tower Hamlets Homes is currently in the process of implementing new Traffic Management Orders on our estates.  During this time, there will be a temporary hold on all applications from Non Tower Hamlets Homes residents until these orders are implemented. If you live in Tower Hamlets but you are not a resident of Tower Hamlets Homes your application will be automatically refused.

 

We are no longer allocating parking permits to people living outside the Tower Hamlets borough. Please do not apply if you live outside this borough as your application will be automatically refused.

  1. Choose an available car space or garage using our Interactive Parking Map. Note down the property reference number as you will need this to complete the application. (Car spaces and garages available to rent are shown in red on the parking map).
  2. Please avoid applying for car spaces or garages which are suspended as your application will be rejected. Suspension for both car space and the garage is listed here.
  3. Apply online using this form (Please note, we do not accept applications for motorcycles to park in car spaces).
  4. Applications will be allocated based on the following priority list:

    • Tower Hamlets Homes (THH) tenants and leaseholders, their partners and their family members
    • THH Freeholders, THH leaseholder’s sub-tenants

  6. If you fall into rent/service charge arrears, we will repossess your car space or garage.
  7. If your application is successful, we will ask you to sign an Estate Facility Licence form and a Direct Debit Form. We do not accept electronic or typed signature in any of our forms.
  8. If you have applied for a garage we will ask you to collect the keys to the garage from our front counters.  If you have applied for a parking space we will send you a parking permit in the post.

Current technical difficulties

There is currently a technical problem on our inter-active parking map which THH is trying to resolve.

As set out above, a number of car spaces and garages on LBTH estates have been held to allow for decent homes work to take place. Unfortunately, due to a system error the properties set out above though showing as being “open to offer” are not actually “available”. Every effort is being made to resolve these problems as soon as possible and we will update this website when this has occurred. We would thank you for your patience in this.
