By 2021 the city of Granada will have low-emission areas in force – the City Hall is looking at January for its 1st-phase inauguration.
There will be restrictions on parking for private vehicles for non-residents in order to reduce pollution and to give back space to pedestrians in the city centre, Albaicín, Sacromonte and El Realejo.
The centre will be included from the junction for Emperatriz Eugenia–San Juan de Dios, as far as the Ribera del Genil-Paseo de la Bomba, where it borders with Pedro Antonio de Alarcón.
The above is the area where restrictions will be the strictest in the long term. So, starting January 2021 the 3,000 parking spaces along the affected streets will be off-limit to non-residents.
There will be exceptions to this norm for zero-emission vehicles (electric), loading & unloading, taxis, motorbikes and scooters.
To distinguish between resident and non-residents the former will have to display stickers supplied by the City Hall. Zero-emission cars must have on display a DGT sticker which credits this.
The affected area is divided into four areas and only residents of each zones can park there – if you have a resident sticker for one of the four areas, you can’t park in any of the other ones.
The restricted zones are bordered by blue-zone areas – there will be 26 new blue-zone areas.
