Paper permits

If you still have a valid paper permit you must continue to display it. Details of current paper permits are not being sent to enforcement officers handhelds and so unless it is displayed they will not know you have one. If you change your vehicle you will need to contact parking services to get the vehicle details on your permit changed and a new paper permit sent out.

When your paper permit is due to expire you will need to apply online for a new virtual permit.

If you do not have access to the internet you can contact parking services explaining your reasons for requesting a paper permit. Parking Services will consider each application for a paper permit on individual circumstances.

A paper application can take up to 10 working days to process on receipt of the completed application form.

Resident parking permits

A resident parking permit allows residents to park their vehicles in an available resident’s bay in the zone where the permit is valid for. This is the zone where your property is located.

The permit is available to purchase either for a 12-month period or 6-month period. If you use or keep a motor vehicle, invalid carriage (with an unladen weight not exceeding 30cwt) or a motorcycle at your permanent residence and if the scheme includes your street you are eligible to apply for a permit.

If you do not own a vehicle but keep one under your “care and control” you will need to produce the registration documents and a letter from the registered owner stating that you have permanent use of the vehicle.
