Changes to parking permits

Our new parking permit system is now live. You can now apply and pay for resident parking permits and visitor vouchers (scratch cards) online.

Temporary permits with an expiry date or 14 October or 4 November are valid until 30 November 2019.

Other permits will continue to be valid until 7 days after the stated expiry date.

We will continue to issue parking fines for any cars parked illegally.

For more information, see the relevant parking permit pages.

Please note, these changes apply to resident and visitor parking permits only and not to blue badges, freedom passes or taxicards.
