Lambeth Council has received funding from Transport for London to expand the number of car club bays in the borough from the current 33 bays, to over 70 bays. This will make car clubs even more accessible to many more residents and businesses .
Car clubs operate pay-as-you-go cars which you can hire by the hour. But unlike hire cars, they are parked locally. Once you are a member, you just book a car, access it with your membership card and drive it away for approximately £5 per hour.
Apart from the cost and time benefits of not having to worry about parking permits, insurance,
maintenance and petrol, car club users who give up their cars also benefit their local community by helping to reduce parking stress, helping to ease traffic congestion and improving local air quality.
New car club bays are proposed in:
Black Prince Road
If you have any comments, please write to: Lambeth car club consultation, Project Centre, Saffron Court, 14b St Cross Street, London EC1N 8XA before 18 July 2008.
If you would like to know more please call Mike Eames at The Project Centre (working on behalf of Lambeth) on 020 7430 6912.
