It is understood that new parking zones will be introduced during the Olympics with free permits for residents. However, some residents in Upper Leytonstone are known to be concerned that the Council may try to extend these zones after the Olympics, following attempts a few years ago to extend parking zones across the Upper Leytonstone area. If you have a view, do try to attend one of the these meetings!
