Our parking permit scheme prioritises parking for residents, businesses and their visitors. Parking is limited to permit holders within these controlled parking zones. This helps to prevent commuter parking and makes it easier to find a parking space close to your address. Any vehicles parked in contravention of the rules of the highway may be issued a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).
Residents in controlled parking zones can apply for up to two residents’ permits.
Businesses in controlled parking zones can apply for one business permit.
Both residents’ and businesses can apply for visitor permits (for short-term visits from friends and family) and a range of permits for landlords, tradespeople and healthcare professionals. See all permit types here.
Your parking permit can only be used within your controlled parking zone. Your permit does not guarantee a space, such as one in front of your house. Spaces cannot be reserved. Permits are only valid in on-street resident permit bays.
In some instances, residents within a controlled parking zone will not automatically be eligible for a residents’ permit. These include:
Some residents’ parking zones allow for limited waiting parking for non-permit holders. The times that non-permit holders can park will differ depending on the area they wish to park in. Please check signage for the hours that the limited parking bay can be used.
