These are the “worst case scenario” and the Police will do their best to ensure the roads stay open for as long as possible.
The council, in partnership with Arsenal as part of the planning agreement, has introduced match day parking controls which prioritises parking for local residents and businesses when Arsenal play at home.
To see a map of the whole match day parking area, in which controls operate, please see the attached pdf document.
If you have a resident or business permit within the match day area, you will not need a separate match day parking permit.
However, residents and businesses in the area who do not wish to buy a CPZ permit are entitled to apply for a match day parking permit which they can use during match day controls only.
If you have any enquiries about parking permits, please call 020 7527 1338.
