Any vehicles parked in disabled bays, double yellow lines, footways or any undesignated parking areas will continue to be enforced before 1 February 2021 regardless if a permit is displayed.

Fines for non-display are levied by the local authority. Any fine appeals should be sent directly to the London Borough of Hackney rather than Sanctuary.

How to display

Permits must be displayed in the parked vehicle face up on the dashboard and visible at all times while parking on the estate. If your permit is not displayed correctly you may receive an enforcement letter including a fine.

Carer permits include a holographic permit and a time disc which must be used together.

Permits must be displayed in the carer’s car as outlined under the how to display header section. Where multiple carers use the permit, it must be returned to the resident after each visit to allow for the next carer to use.

Where a sole carer has a permit, they may keep the permit rather than returning it to the resident after each visit.
