Ealing Council operates Controlled Parking Zones (CPZ). Ealing Broadway is just outside Central Zone A, but so close that using the parking spaces there must be considered. This is good because part of Zone A is a “Low Car Housing Scheme” in which residents cannot obtain parking permits, so on-street parking bays are available. Note that no parking in Ealing can be paid for in cash; visitors pay by phone.
As a borough, Ealing has a number of car parks run by a range of owners and managers of which the council is in the minority. There are, however, fewer car parks close to the station. Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre has 600 spaces on three floors from Monday to Friday and more than 800 at weekends. Reach it from Grove Road or Windsor Road. Cost range from £1 for up to an hour to £12 for 12 to 24 hours. Springbridge Road has 465 spaces and weekend parking there is particularly cheap at £3 all day on Saturday and £1 all day on Sunday.
The most obvious public transport from Ealing Broadway Station is by rail, both mainline to the West Country and Wales and by underground into the centre of London (though mainline travel to central London is faster by train to Paddington). There is also a plethora of buses, including the 24-hour Metroline route.
Blue Badge holders can park free of charge in appropriate marked bays, but Ealing Council is stringent on fraudulent use of Blue Badges and uses both CCTV and council patrols to identify them. As an example of what can happen, a resident who was not disabled and used a Blue Badge to go shopping and to the bank was fined £1,000 by Ealing Magistrates with costs of £438 and a victim surcharge of £30. This was one of 70 cases prosecuted by the Council in a single year.
Parking spaces are, as will be seen from the above, fairly tightly controlled through a series of Controlled Parking Zones and Ealing uses officers and CCTV to police the regulations strictly. Ealing has a much higher level of prosecutions for traffic offences, including parking offences, than the majority of Local Authorities.
Parking restrictions are lifted on bank holidays in the Christmas to New Year period, but decisions on lifting restrictions for other bank holidays are made on a case-by-case basis.
