Most of the roads around SE5 are controlled parking, and either parking suspensions or dispensations are required. For larger Removals in SE5 a parking suspension is a necessity. The suspension has to be booked up to 14 working days in advance of the required date. These are booked with your local council online.

A Little Bit About SE5
The SE postcode district was originally created as part of the London Postal District in 1857. In 1868 some of the areas of the abolished S district were added The postal district of SE5 covers Camberwell, Denmark Hill and Peckham. The local authorities covering these areas is Lambeth and Southwark.
Camberwell was a farming community until 1800. Mineral wells and springs were plentiful in the area until about 1850 and were reputed to have healing properties and many invalids visited in the hope of a cure. It is perhaps significant that the local church was named in honour of St Giles, the Patron Saint of Cripples.
Denmark Hill is an area and road in Camberwell, in the London Borough of Southwark. It marks the edge of the Thames valley plain in this area — from here to the river the land is flat. There are good views across central London from vantage points on the top of the hill to the north and neighbouring Dulwich to the south. On a clear day one can read the time on the Big Ben clockface.
‘Peckham’ is a Saxon place name meaning the village of the River Peck, a small stream that ran through the district until it was enclosed in 1823. Archaeological evidence indicates earlier Roman occupation in the area, although the name of this settlement is lost. Peckham appears in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Pecheham. It was held by the Bishop of Lisieux from the Bishop of Bayeux. Its Domesday assets were: 2 hides. It had land for 1 plough, 2 acres (8,100 m2) of meadow. It rendered £1 10s 0d (£1.50).
