School Streets

School Streets are areas around School entrances that are closed to vehicles during peak drop-off and pick-up times. 

This is to help children access the school safely, promote active travel and reduce air pollution. 

Only vehicles with valid School Street permits are permitted to enter School Streets during restricted times.

School Street Permits 


You may be eligible to apply for a free digital School Street access permit online. As they are digital, you will not need to display anything in your vehicle. 

School Street permits normally last an academic year (1st September to 31st July). Permits applied for in August will apply to the following school year. 

Terms and conditions apply. 

We aim to review all applications within 7 working days​

Please remember that School Street permits are not parking permits, and when parking, all restrictions that may be present must be followed.




Annual Permits​


You can apply ​online for a School Street permit ​​​​​​​​​​​External link opens in a new window if you live within a School Street and your vehicle is registered or kept at your address.

  • Lease, Finance or Rental Agreement 
  • Insurance Certificate and Policy (including Motability Insurance)

If you are unable to provide a Council Tax reference you will need to download our application form (PDF), and provide a proof of address. This will then allow you to obtain permits. The completed form should then be sent to parking.permits@cardiff.gov.uk​

You won’t need a School Street permit if your vehicle already has a digital resident e-permit. Resident visitor parking permits do not apply to School Streets.

Emergency Visitor Passes 


Residents have the option to obtain up to 30 day passes per academic year for visitors requiring access in the event of an emergency (such as if a plumber needs to attend a water leak). 

One pass provides one vehicle with one full day’s access. 

While there will be no limit on the number of emergency passes that can be activated at any one time, they are not transferable between vehicles. 

When your visitor arrives you can activate an emergency day pass via the “Activate Visitor Permit” option on your MiPermit account.

However the permit only applies when the vehicle is being used solely for the benefit of the Blue Badge holder at the time of entering the School Street, and the Blue Badge holder must have their Blue Badge with them at all times.  

Carers​

​Enforcement 




It is an offence to enter or drive in an active school Street without a valid school street permit. We will use enforcement cameras to monitor school streets and issue fines (Penalty Charge Notices​) to offenders. 

The fine for this offence is £70, reduced to £35 if paid within 21 days. If the fine is ignored the penalty will increase. There will be a right of appeal if you believe the PCN should not have been issued. 

Enforcement will take place when schools are open​.​
