It's been two weeks since I signalled the existence of a parking area (at: http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/39.40062/-8.49077) and still it doesn't show up in the map.
I've noticed, when I use the editor, that (unlike other parking areas, that I've created, that appear in yellow) this particular parking area, that doesn't show up in the map, appears in green.
(Can it be because it has trees on top of it - in the satellite picture - and the map automatically thinks it's a "green"/forest area, instead?)
I've tried adding the two tiny access paths that connect it to the road - but, still the map doesn't show the parking area, while already showing the tiny access paths.

There is a problem with the way you drew for the parking lot - JOSM says it has "self-crossing" ways. The easy solution is to just redraw it and move on. These sorts of errors are hard to see and therefore hard to correct. Also, your "access paths" are not connected to the parking way. That would not cause the "crossing ways" error though; it's merely an observation.
Thank you all, for your help.
So it appears that it was some freak error - probably caused by my "perfectionism", that sometimes leads me to redraw some things(?). I don't know...
Anyway, I took your advice, and just redraw the area in question - and, now it's already showing yellow in the editor. So, everything looks well now.
But, concerning the connections between the access "paths" and the parking areas, how come (or, what do you mean by) they are not "connected"? Doesn't the simple fact of an "ending dot" being on top of a road line produces/makes a "connection"?
(Sorry for the noob question. I usually only edit, and add, buildings and areas - and stay away from editing roads.)

The reason is that you added the tags to a line, not to an area. You have to use the area option in iD to draw parkings.

Hi, somehow (I don't know how) you uploaded two versions of the area in the same changeset, one version without tags one version with the tags. The area is in the database but only the untagged version is rendered (again I don't know how). Solution revert the changeset 46535904 (that should remove both versions) then redraw the area tag and upload. As said the two service roads are not connected to the parking area nor to the road EN 365. Also for your other closeby parking area the service road is not connected to the parking area.
