Controlled Parking Zones

What is a Controlled Parking Zone?

A Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) is an area which:

  • is restricted by single or double yellow lines
  • or requires you to have a parking permit to park your car. 

CPZ's limit on-street parking at certain times, helps solve parking issues and improves safety in the area.

You can view CPZ and parking restriction times on our map below.

When can I park in a CPZ?

You can park in a CPZ at times shown on street signs. The signs are on all routes leading into the parking zone.

Resident parking permits

A Resident parking permit allows residents to park in specific bays in a CPZ. The permits lasts for one year, starting on the first day of a chosen month.

Do you need a parking permit?

A parking permit is not required for:

  • vehicles displaying a Blue Badge
  • motorcycles parked in either pay-and-display bays or in resident bays. 

If you have three or more unpaid Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs), you can't get a parking permit. This applies to both Resident and Business permits.

Enter your address to check if you need a parking permit. You can't apply for a permit if your property is in a permit-restricted area unless you have a Blue Badge.
