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.


Passenger transport services

Who are we and what do we do

We operate a range of vehicles from 15 seat minibuses to 35 seat coaches. The vast majority of our fleet is fully accessible to wheelchair users.

All staff operating our services have appropriate training in dealing with children and adults with disabilities, wear uniform, carry photographic identification, and are routinely checked through the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS).

Passenger transport services arranges and delivers all the home to school or centre transport for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) or adults with care plans. We currently operate 43 daily routes with our own buses and manage approximately 80 regular routes operated by our external partners.

Passenger transport services also supports schools and colleges by providing transport to swimming baths, after-school clubs and trips to residential centres. We also provide transport to local voluntary and community-based groups.

Transport services also operates a public MOT bay, manages and maintains the council's fleet of 180 vehicles and operates the collection service for underground refuse containers on many housing developments in the borough.
