People Parking Bay

Link to web site

"When Brenda Puech - who does not have a car - tried to pay online for an annual parking permit in Hackney she found there were no options for planting a bench, plants or cycle stands in a parking bay. So she emailed parking services to ask if she could make her payment in person. The answer was a definite No. She could not have a permit for parking anything other than a car. With an engine.

"So, she decided to go ahead anyway, to show how the space could be used something other than for parking a car.

"On Friday 26 May, she [transformed] a car parking bay in Hackney into a 'people parking bay'. Instead of a car she [has] placed items where people can park themselves (a bench), their shopping and bags (a table), their cycles (bike stands) and their eyes on plants and flowers."
