Since July 12, the Paris city hall has set up a new single resident parking lot. We explain how it works.
It was one of the campaign promises ofAnne Hidalgo, that of thoroughly reforming surface parking in the coming years. While it no longer hides its desire to ban cars and globally all motorized vehicles from the streets of the capital, the city council is increasing the measures aimed at complicating the lives of motorists. While she plans to remove more than 60,000 places, the mayor of Paris has also set up a vast parking reform, including a price increase, as well as the obligation for two-wheelers to pay for parking. But these new measures do not only concern visitors, since parking for residents has also undergone some changes, which again should not necessarily appeal to motorists, while the mayor of Paris also wishes to dissuade residents from having several vehicles. .
Until then, a single resident could in fact own two or more cars, all eligible for the resident rate. This is no longer the case, since, as the Paris City Hall website specifies, “ from July 12, 2021 only one parking right is granted per user “. Concretely, this means that only one vehicle will now be eligible for resident parking, even if you have several. The 2nd will then be submitted to visitor rate, which should undoubtedly push a lot of Parisians to get rid of it. And for good reason, the amount of parking will increase from August 1, rising to 6 € / h in the first 11 arrondissements and 4 € / h in the rest of the capital, as well as in the Bois de Vincennes and Boulogne. What greatly complicates the life of the inhabitants of intramural Paris, some needing to have two vehicles. Especially since this new rule also applies if you have two low emission cars.
Be aware that if it is therefore impossible to benefit from the resident rate if you own two vehicles in your name, a single household can however have several cars benefiting from this amount. The registration certificates will then have to be in the names of different people “ on condition of proving a main address in Paris identical to that of the registration certificate “. Indeed, only permanent residents of Paris have the right to benefit from this preferential rate, while second homes are not eligible. Residential parking can also be free under certain conditions, for example, if you own a non-polluting vehicle. On the other hand, you will have to pay the visitor rate if you have another car, even if it is electric. The mayor of Paris also specifies that ” even if you benefit from the free parking fee, you must pay the parking fee (per day 1.50 € or per week 9 €) ».
