Parking in Devane Way

Parking bays on Devane Way

Parking is very limited in Devane Way SE27 –  the road leading  up to West Norwood Health  & Leisure Centre. Most people access the centre on foot.

Next week the parking bays will be repainted to clearly indicate where parking is permitted for up to 10 minutes. Parking enforcement teams will visit from time to time. They will issue tickets to vehicles they see parked for over 10 minutes.

Barrier with buzzer

 

There are 5 parking spaces for blue badge holders right outside the Health & Leisure Centre. Anyone with limited mobility who needs to park or be dropped off must use the buzzer beside the barrier to speak to reception.
