Berkshire residents living near the Olympic rowing and canoeing venue have been invited to apply for special parking permits.

Windsor and Maidenhead motorists within parking protection zones are eligible during the Games at Eton Dorney Lake in Buckinghamshire.

It is hoped the move will minimise disruption for local people.

Permits are also available for those who need to park vehicles on the public highway between 28 July and 11 August.

Residents with off-street parking are not affected and need not apply.

The permits are available on application. The deadline is 21 July.

Windsor and Maidenhead council will hold drop-in sessions in Dedworth and Eton Wick where residents can apply for permits in person.

Councillor Phill Bicknell said: "We can't deny the fact that there will be disruption but the council is working closely with the Games organisers to make sure that the needs of our residents are well catered for."
