Many roads in Stanford-le-Hope are part of a parking permit area (PPA), which means at certain times parking is reserved for permit holders only.
The parking permit area has 3 zones, called zone A, zone B and zone C. Parking is restricted in all 3 zones from Monday to Friday, between 10am and 4pm.
Residents should apply for a parking permit to park on roads in these zones from Monday to Friday between 10am and 4pm. Only residents can apply for permits.
Parking permit restrictions do not apply in limited waiting bays, on yellow lines or in disabled persons' parking bays.
The roads in each zone are listed below. In some cases only part of the road is in a zone – this is shown by signs next to the roads and by the word "(part)" in the table below.

Zone A started on 14 September 2018. Zones B and C started on 7 June 2019.
In each zone:
- double yellow lines are at junctions where needed to maintain safety, visibility and accessibility
- single yellow lines that previously restricted parking from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, have been removed
- signs and lines have been removed where they were causing confusion or clutter
Restrictions around the town centre – including limited waiting bays – were introduced in 2003 and remain in place on the following roads:
- Central Road (part)
- Church Hill, including The Green
- Corringham Road (part)
- High Street (part)
- King Street
- London Road (part)
The parking permit area has replaced the controlled parking zone that was previously in place. The parking restrictions above replace previous controlled parking zone restrictions.
The current parking permit area zones were introduced following an informal consultation with residents in March 2017 and a full statutory consultation throughout Stanford-le-Hope in 2018.
