Merton's disability M-Card: parking benefits get even better!

We are always working to offer more benefits for our M-Card holders. Parking Services in Merton have worked with us to allow M-Card holders to benefit, with immediate effect, from the following:

  1. M-Card holders are now entitled to 30 minutes parking at school drop-off and pick-up times in pay and display and / or permit bays and on yellow lines only in the immediate vicinity of the school. Parking on the zig zag lines at any time is strictly forbidden.
  2. Holders can get 2 hours’ parking in the immediate vicinity of children’s centres in pay and display and / or permit bays and on single yellow lines.
  3. Buy one hour of parking and get one free at Peel House Car Park, lower level opposite Sainsbury’s in Morden (note: This can be used when visiting Merton Civic Centre).

Parking officers have been asked to allow one hour extra on top of a valid ticket’s purchase time when displayed with an M-Card on your dashboard. Maximum stay: 2 hours

  1. NEW! Buy one hour of parking and get one free in Merton’s open spaces at Abbey Recreation Ground, Tamworth Recreation Ground, Wimbledon Park, Haydon’s Road Recreation Ground and Morden Park. Parking officers have been asked to allow one hour extra on top of a valid ticket’s purchase time when displayed with an M-Card on your dashboard.

To be able to benefit from any of the above, you must display your child’s M-Card clearly on your dashboard

Please note: If a PCN is issued, you will need to appeal in the normal way to Parking Services, with a copy of your M-Card.
