Resident parking permits

Residents who live in parking zones in Hackney can apply for resident permits. Permits are available for 3, 6 or 12 months. Permits are now electronic permits (e-permits), which means you don’t have to display a paper permit in your vehicle.

Paper permit holders should continue to display their permit until it expires.

If you are applying for a change of vehicle or address related to your permit, an e-permit will be issued.

It’s quicker and easier to get your car covered with e-permits:

  • start your permit today with no need to display anything in your vehicle
  • Civil Enforcement Officers (parking attendants) can check your permit is valid using your vehicle registration number

Apply for or renew your permit

Before you start

You will need:

  • an email address
  • your vehicle registration number
  • a debit or credit card

You may also be asked to provide a proof of residency and / or vehicle ownership if we can’t confirm your residency and vehicle information automatically. We will accept scanned copies or photos of supporting documents.

What happens after you apply?

If you are entitled to a permit and submit everything we need to approve your application, your e-permit will start on the date that you have selected in your application. Any visitor vouchers that you have purchased will be delivered within 4 working days. If your application isn’t successful, we will contact you to explain why or what you need to do to help us process it.
