By Car

Many of the streets off Hoe Street are in Controlled Parking Zones (CPZ) that operate on Sunday evening. The CPZ to the east of Hoe Street accessible from Richard Place and Milton Road does not operate on Sunday, but parking is difficult. You may be better off access back streets to the west of Hoe Street from Forest Road and then walk through (its only pedestrian access from Hoe Street). Details of the CPZs are available on the Council web site.
