Resident Parking permits

A Resident Parking permit is available to residents of eligible properties living in a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ). 

All Resident Parking permits are valid for one year and start on the first day of the specified month.

The permit does not guarantee a parking space will be available and cannot be used in any area where temporary parking restrictions are in place including suspended bays. 

When a permit has been issued for a vehicle, that vehicle will be allowed to park within a residents parking bay in the specific CPZ the permit was issued for.

Permit Restricted Properties

Some addresses are not eligible for visitor parking permits due to conditions applied when planning permission was approved for the development of certain properties.

This applies to developments that are 'car free' or have good access to public transport. Blue Badge holders may still be able to apply for parking permits in these conditions.
