Resident Parking Permits

You can apply for a resident parking permit if you're a resident of a street where there is resident only parking or limited waiting parking with exemption for residents.

 

Resident parking permits are annual and valid until the end of the issuing month the following year. (i.e. if you applied on 02 April 2021, the permit would expire 30 April 2022).

 

Resident parking permit holders must ensure that:

  • The permit is displayed clearly in the windscreen of their vehicle
  • The permit is valid and not expired
  • The registration number and street is correct

Please note: Your vehicle must not exceed 2.44m (8ft) in height and 5.49m (18ft) in length. However, in designated Resident Permit Parking Areas where there are no marked bays, motor caravans and campervans which exceed 2.44m (8ft) in height and 5.49m (18ft) in length, or exceed a maximum mass of 3.5 tonnes, will be eligible for a resident parking permit as long as the vehicle is registered at the property. Visitor permits are NOT permitted for such vehicles in these areas.

Please Remember:

  • Issued to elderly or infirm residents who do not own their own vehicle and who depend on regular visitors or care
  • The permit is given to visitors (e.g. carers or relations) on arrival to be displayed in their vehicle during their stay.
  • Only one permit allowed per address. You must not have any other type of resident permit registered at the address.
  • This permit is valid for one year and must be renewed annually.

Replacement Parking Permits

If your parking permit has been lost, stolen or destroyed or you have changed your vehicle and you cannot return the parking permit, you can apply for a replacement:

 

 

If you need to renew a parking permit, you will have to apply again in full online or via post.

 

Please note: All permits have holograms and are issued using a special pen with fade and water resistant ink. Your permit will show the street/zone that the permit is valid for including the vehicle registration mark and date of expiry. Any other markings or attempt at defacing the permit will automatically null and void the permit and the Civil Enforcement Officer (CEO) can take action and issue a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).

 

The provision of resident parking permits specifically precludes new developments which would be expected to provide suitable parking on site.
