Apply for a visitor parking permit

People who live in an area with resident parking can apply for visitor parking permits.

Parking permits for visitors are only issued to residents who are registered in the scheme.

Visitor parking permits are available:

  • as a book of 10 permits, each valid for 1 day
  • at a cost of £10 per book
  • on a first come, first served basis

A maximum of 2 visitor permit books are issued per property per calendar month. Any unused allocation may not be carried forward to the next month.

Where road space is limited, the number of visitor permit books issued per property may be reduced accordingly. Please check the appropriate zone information sheet.

Resident parking permits allocation

If a property’s resident permit allocation is not taken up by vehicle owners, non-vehicle owners at the property may register in order to purchase visitor permits (proof of address is required to register).

This is subject to the total number of registered persons at a property not exceeding the maximum specified for a property in that zone. Please check the appropriate zone information sheet.

If vehicle owners subsequently move into the property, they will have priority over any existing non-vehicle owners who have registered to purchase visitor permits. This will be effective from the next renewal date, or earlier by mutual consent.

Guidelines for visitor parking

  • Visitors must park within the parking bays of a designated zone for one day only, on the date specified on the permit
  • Visitor permits are vehicle-specific and non-transferable
  • It's the responsibility of the vehicle user to ensure the permit is clearly displayed with the date of use and vehicle registration clearly visible
