Resident on-street parking permit

Reintroduction of four main parent Controlled Parking Zones

The terms and conditions for residents’ permits are changing from 1 February 2023. You will receive an email to confirm this.

If you have any A permit you can park, all day during the controlled hours, in any of the A Zones.

The same applies to holders of any B, C or D permits. You can park all day in any of the zones which have the same letter as your permit.

The permit will no longer rely on the prefix number to be valid.

This permit allows residents of Tower Hamlets to park their vehicles near their homes.

Before applying for a permit, it is important that you read the terms and conditions.

Documents you must supply when applying for a permit

You must supply one proof of where you live, and one proof of vehicle. Both documents must show your full name and address in Tower Hamlets.

Proof of where you live

  • UK driving licence 

Proof of vehicle

  • Vehicle logbook (V5C); or  
  • Insurance certificate and policy/schedule if you are the policy holder

To see what other proofs are accepted or what additional proofs are required if you are a blue badge holder or you live in a car-free property, refer to the terms and conditions.
