Renew an existing permit

Any payments or applications for residential parking permits or Blue Badges made through the post may not be actioned for some time due to the current restrictions in place for non-essential travel. This will mean that ​any cheques or PO’s sent through the post will not be cashed until the restrictions are lifted. Customers should ensure that they have sufficient funds in their accounts to ensure that they payment can clear and also ensure that they will not be overdrawn as a result.

Where possible please make any application for residential parking permits or Blue Badges​ using the online parking system​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​External link opens in a new window, these are being monitored and processed. Any postal applications may not be processed until restrictions are lifted. If your permit or Blue Badge expired in March then please continue to use your permit or badge and submit your application online as soon as possible.

You can renew an existing permit within the last month that it is valid.  

To renew a permit online you will need:

  • ​Permit reference number
  • Renewal code that we sent to you either with your existing permit or in a permit renewal letter.  
  • A credit or debit card to pay for your permit

If your existing permit has already expired you cannot renew it.  You must apply for a new permit instead.

While waiting for your permits you must ensure that your vehicle is parked legally.

Parking Permits are available in either Welsh or English 

We will ensure that permits are sent in accordance with your language choice, and annual renewals will be sent automatically in the language you have previously selected.

To receive a Welsh parking permit, please select ‘Cymraeg’ and complete the application form in Welsh.

If you wish to change your language choice at any time, please apply for a new permit and complete the application in either Welsh or English.

Please note: If your permit is due to expire in October or November you will receive your renewal letter and web code to use the online service.

You can also renew by post​. You will need to produce current proof of address with payment when you renew your permit.
