Find out if you need a parking permit

In Controlled Parking Zones (CPZ) a permit is required to park on the road. 

Parking permits do not allow vehicles to park on single or double yellow lines during the hours that restrictions apply.

Parking permits are not required for:

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

Drivers of eco-friendly vehicles still need to have a parking permit to park in a CPZ but these permits are free of charge. 

If you have received three or more Penalty Charge Notices(PCNs) which are not subject to challenge, you will not be able to apply for a parking permit. This is the case for both resident and business parking permits.

To find out if you need a parking permit enter your street address in below. If your property is showing as a permit restricted area, you will not be able to apply for a permit unless you are a Blue Badge holder.
