A PARKING permit scheme is set to be introduced next week.

The Controlled Parking Zone has been suggested to counter increased commuters coming to Gravesend to use the new High Speed Rail Service introduced in December.

The zones, which will come into force next Monday, February 22, will see restrictions extended to roads such as Clarence Place and Wingfield Road where residents permits will be required for all-day parking.

The scheme was due to be introduced on February 8, but this was delayed. A spokesman for Gravesham Borough Council said: "The introduction of the new Controlled Parking Zone around Gravesend has been delayed because of the extreme and severe weather at the beginning of January.

"Drivers who use the town centre to park must secure a valid permit from Monday to avoid receiving a ticket."

Further details on all the roads involved and how to secure a permit can be obtained by calling the council on 01474 337 000 or visiting www.gravseham.gov.uk
