On-street resident parking permits

Residents who live in parking zones can apply for a permit. They are available for 3, 6, or 12 months.

  • permits are e-permits, so there is no need to display them in your vehicle
  • civil enforcement officers (parking wardens) can check your permit is valid using your vehicle registration mark
  • you can check the status of your e-permit or manage changes via your parking account
  • renewal reminders will be sent to e-permit holders 6 weeks before it’s due to expire

If you live on an estate, you need to apply for an estate parking permit.

Apply for or renew your permit online

We have created a ‘how to’ video showing how to purchase a parking permit using the parking system.

What happens after you apply?

If you’re entitled to an e-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.

If your application isn’t successful, we’ll contact you to explain why or what you need to do to help us process it.

Read the terms and conditions below before you start using your e-permit.
