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.

Validating a Visitor Parking Permit

For all controlled parking zones except zone HB, a permit is validated by scratching off the day and month. The Visitor Parking Permit will be invalid if the day or month is not scratched off or more than one day or month is scratched off.

  • For zone HB you must scratch out either the day or night time box at the top.
  • For a day visit the permit is validated by scratching out the day and the month.
  • For an overnight visit both days must be scratched out and where applicable both months (eg 28 Feb & 01 Mar)
