Who can apply?

You can apply for a permit if you live in a street where a residential parking permit scheme is in operation.  

There are 3 types of permit available:

  • ​Resident permit
  • Visitor Permit
  • Visitor only permit

Anyone living at the address may apply for a permit as long as the address is your primary residence. However, there is a limit of 2 resident permits and 1 visitor permit per property

Please note: Some properties may not be entitled to a parking permit or a visitor permit as some restrictions do apply.

You can apply for all permits together, or individual residents can apply in their own right. Permits are valid for up to one year.

Rental properties

All tenants including students

You need a council tax number to make an online application for a parking permit. 

All tenants who are renting should get this information from their landlord. 

Please make an application by post if this information is not available. 

You must be in residence before applying. Advance applications are not accepted.
