A maximum of two permits are issued to each household in streets designated as within residents’ parking zones. A household is a house or flat in a permit parking zone that is registered for Council Tax, has the right planning permissions, and does not have a planning condition and/or informative. Residents may be asked to prove appropriate planning consents.
Please check that your household is included in the Parking Zones.
Commercial vehicles are not eligible for resident permits. Vehicle must be below 5.3 metres long and/or 2.25 metres high.
It’s up to you to decide who will apply for the first and who will apply for the second permit. If more than one person applies for the first permit it could delay the permits being issued.
1st Permit: a £40 charge applies
2nd Permit: £150 charge applies
Charges after 1 May 2021 – 1st permit £42, 2nd permit £157.50

Only one proof required showing the address for which the permit is for. The council will not issue a permit if the vehicle is registered to a different address. The only exception to this is company vehicles and lease/rental cars. If you are not the owner of the vehicle, we require a copy letter stating that you have a right to use the vehicle including documents that show you are insured to use the vehicle.
Only one required showing name and address of resident, dated within last 4 months
