Parking price increases came into effect on 18 April 2019

From October 2019, there will be an additional charge for a diesel vehicle and this charge will be in addition to the cost of a permit, including any surcharge applied to the second and third permit in a residential household.

A full list of the changes can be found on the parking charges page.

Market trader parking permit

You can apply for a market trader parking permit if you are a licensed market trader in the borough, and the vehicle is registered with market services.

There is a separate application for market trader scratchcards.

How and where to use a permit

Providing your parking permit is correctly displayed, you can park all day in parking bays signed:

  • Business permit holders only
  • Business permit holders or pay at machine
  • Permit holders only
  • Permit holders or pay at machine
  • Sunday market trader permits only.

Your parking permit is not valid for parking in bays signed differently to those above or off-street on estates. You should also make sure you do not park in suspended bays regardless of whether or not the reason for the suspension is apparent.


Change in details

If you change your vehicle you will have to register your new vehicle with Market Services and return your permit for the remaining time to be transferred onto the new vehicle.

There is a £5 administration fee.
