Visitor parking

​​​​​​​​If you live in a resident parking area you can buy visitor parking hours through MiPermit. 

Once you have bought hours you will need to register your visitor’s vehicle when they park.

You can buy up to 6 batches of 850 hours. 1 batch of 850 hours will cost £30. You will be able to buy a maximum of 5,100 hours per year.

You will lose any remaining unused hours on your account 1 year after you buy them. If you have used the maximum number of hours, you will not be able to buy more until a year has passed since your first purchase.

You visitor will not need to display anything in their vehicle.
