Members of clinical, health and social care professions who duties necessitate parking within a permit parking zone for the direct benefit of the residents of those zones may apply for a permit. A £40 (£42 after 1 May 2021) fee applies; proof of healthcare professional status, vehicle ownership and statement of reasons required.
The following professions will normally qualify for permits:
Please ensure the practice address is used, not your home address.
Confirmation of employment as healthcare professional; either completed application form with practice stamp or letter on headed paper signed by senior partner/manager at relevant practice or by social services relevant manager.
Only one proof required
Each applicant must explain the reasons for applying for a healthcare professional permit. This must include the purpose of your visits, how long a visit (on average) to a patient takes, why the alternatives are not suitable (e.g. the non-permit parking spaces in the zones) and any other information you feel is important in helping us decide your application. The more detailed your reasons for applying, the more information the council can use to decide your application. Failure to provide this information or supplying inadequate information, will delay the processing of your application. (Please note: we are not asking for the personal details of your patients).
