I don't know how new it is , but Wandsworth has a new IT system to manage online parking permits. It must have been put together by the same team that worked on the IT transition at the TSB bank, because it's an absolute mess! It took us 8 attempts with 4 different email addresses before we managed to register an account (yes, we checked the spam folders).
A temporary permit application sent 10 days has still not been processed, even though the council says on its site it should take 2 working days.
The new online system no longer lets us access it, and the 'reset password' doesn't work, either.
Tried ringing the council, but "there is no one available to take your call, goodbye". The recorded message did however inform me that they're aware "a number of users have been experiencing issues due to the high number etc etc" (and not to the ineptitude of those who designed the IT system - surely the council knew how many users to expect, Wandsworth's population hasn't doubled overnight).
Maybe this is why Wandsworth has one of the cheapest council tax?
