Factsheet: Residents' parking permits

Applications and renewals


Apply online at .

Permit applications are regularly audited.  Therefore, we reserve the right at any time to request supporting proof of residency, such as a utility bill in the permit holder’s name and the vehicle’s v5 document or insurance documents to confirm that it is registered to the permit holder.

Permits will be sent in the post. Please allow three working days for delivery and do not park in a residents’ space until the permit is displayed.

The Council is not responsible for any input errors made by the applicant at the time of submission.  make sure you have selected the correct address and input the registration number of your car correctly.

Resident permits must be issued in the name of the person, who according to the DVLA is the registered keeper of the vehicle. Your vehicle does not need to be registered before you apply for your permit.

May we remind you that it is an offence not to inform the DVLA of any registered keeper or address detail changes.


A resident’s permit costs £30 a year.

Visitor permits cost £30 for a book of 30. Properties are usually allowed two of each per year, but some areas have other limitations as well. We will let you know about these when you apply.

Once you have purchased a permit it is non-refundable. We only refund where a permit book is returned to us unused.  Any refund issued will be to the card used to pay for it initially.


Only use the renew option if there are no changes at all to the previous permit.  Make sure you apply before your existing permit expires and leave enough time for the new permit to be sent out to you. If you park without a permit, even if you are waiting for it to be delivered, you can still receive a parking ticket.
