1. Notice is hereby given that the Council of the London Borough of Harrow has made the above-mentioned Order under sections 45, 46, 47, 124 and Part IV of Schedule 9 to the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 as amended by the Local Government Act 1985 and all other enabling powers. 2. The general effect of the Order will be to introduce two new types of permits for use in resident and shared use parking places. The types of permits and brief descriptions of their intended use are detailed below. Carer’s Permits The purpose of the carer’s permit will be to allow visitors who provide essential care for a person living within a controlled parking zone to park close by when visiting in a caring capacity. Carers may be people such as volunteers, family and friends, or nurses making home visits etc. The resident will retain the permit at their home address, and give the permit to the carer to display in the vehicle during hours when the controlled parking zone is in operation. Usage will be limited to roads near to the address being visited. The permit will be available, free of charge, and applications will be subject to the council’s criteria. There will be strict control over the issue of these permits, including withdrawal of a permit in the event of misuse. Health Care Permits The purpose of health care permits is to provide health care workers with a facility whereby they can park in controlled parking zones during the hours of operation, so as to administer treatment to their patients as necessary. Permits may be applied for by organisations providing specialist health care services to the community, such as the Harrow Primary Care Trust for example, and will be given permits subject to the council’s criteria at a cost no greater than an administrative charge. The permits will be valid borough wide. There will be strict control over the issue of these permits, including withdrawal of a permit in the event of misuse. 3. Permits for schools within Controlled Parking Zones. Where a Headteacher believes it essential, for school operational reasons, for staff vehicles to park near to a school, the Headteacher may apply for up to two resident permits providing there is insufficient on-site parking, the school already has a green travel plan, and such provision will not unreasonably detract from residents’ parking space available on-street. Costs would be at the normal rates for resident permits. Permits will be zone based, and there will be strict control over the issue of these permits, including withdrawal of a permit in the event of misuse. 4. Permits issued to environmentally friendly vehicles (as defined by the Order), and motorbikes will be free of charge. 5. The Order also revokes The Harrow (Parking Places) Traffic Order 2000 and all subsequent amendment Orders made to that Order by consolidating those Orders. 6. A copy of the Order which will come into operation on 25 July 2006 including other documents relating to the Order are available for inspection between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm Mondays to Fridays at the One Stop Shop at the Civic Centre, until 6 weeks from the date on which the Order was made. 7. If any person wishes to question the validity of the Order or of its provisions on the grounds that it or they are not within the powers conferred by the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, or that any requirement of the Act or of any instrument made under the Act has not been complied with, that person may, within 6 weeks of the date on which the Order is made, apply for the purpose to the High Court.
