Doctors' parking

If you are a general practitioner (GP) with a surgery in Islington, you may apply for a doctors' parking bay and permit.

You need to have a doctors' bay before you can apply for a permit.

Doctors' bays

Surgeries without a doctors' bay can apply for one by calling 020 7527 4797. Doctors' bays are only intended to be used for essential vehicles for health care emergencies.

We usually only allocate one bay for each practice but permits to use them can have more than one vehicle on them.

Bays will be allocated following a review of parking availability in the area and after taking into consideration other factors such as if applicants already hold resident permits.

There is a charge of £2,830 to consult on, design, and put a doctors' bay in place.

If your application is successful, installation can regrettably be a lengthy process. This is because we are required to consult local people first and then need to complete a number of legal documents before the bay can be put in place.

Doctors' permit

If a surgery already has a bay you may apply for a permit by emailing parkingpermits@islington.gov.uk

A permit may have more than one vehicle on it to enable a surgery to provide emergency cover on a rota basis.

Doctors' permits cannot be used for commuter parking.

The annual rental fee for an existing doctors' bay is £250, permits are issued free of charge.
