A quick question – how are you getting on with Olympic parking permits? Asking around, there still seems to be a fair bit of confusion around, two weeks ahead of restrictions kicking in.
I applied and was surprised to be sent four visitor permits after a month’s wait – on enquiring further, I’m told there’s been a cock-up and everybody’s been sent twice as many permits as that should have been.
So, while I stride through the streets of Charlton clutching my parking booty, wondering if I know four people with cars who want to visit me simultaneously, how is the process going for you? Whether you live in Greenwich or Lewisham, please share your experiences.

2.30pm update: I’m told that despite the passes and notepaper bearing Royal Borough of Greenwich logos, it’s a LOCOG cock-up instead of a council cock-up. Other boroughs, though, seem to be operating a paperless “virtual permit” system – so what’s different about Greenwich? It’s all odd.
