Eighteen year wait for parking permit

People moving to the western edge of Amsterdam’s Vondel park have to wait an average 18 years for a parking permit, the Parool reported on Friday.

In other parts of the borough of Oud-West the waiting time ranges from 18 months to seven years.
The council admits the wait is too long and plans to take steps, the paper says.
