Some Controlled Parking Zones (CPZs) or Permit Parking Areas (PPAs) require specific permits. You can apply for a permit to park in these areas for certain times of the day.
Types of permits:
To prove the address where the vehicle is kept within the CPZ or PPA, you must provide the vehicle registration document (for the address you are applying for a permit for) and a utility bill (within the last three months). You can upload these documents during your online application.
New online permit system
We have introduced a new online permit system. The first time you use this system you will need to set up an account before you can apply for a permit. You will not be able to renew your existing permit (issued before 29 July 2019), you will need to apply for a new one and provide supporting evidence.
Parking permit terms and conditions
Permits for residents, businesses and carers last for one year and must be renewed after the expiry date. You must purchase a permit for each vehicle registered under your name. Permits are limited to three per person.
Resident permit prices are based on vehicle engine size.
Blue badge holders can apply for a resident permit free of charge.
|Engine size||Price for all-day zones||Price for 1-to-4 hour zones|
|1000cc or less||£55||£27.50|
|1001cc to 1600cc||£110||£55|
|1601cc to 1999cc||£165||£82.50|
|2000cc to 2499cc||£220||£110|
|2500cc to 2999cc||£275||£137.50|
|Time||Price for all-day zones||Price for 1-to-4 hour zones|
To prove the address where the vehicle is kept within the CPZ area, you must provide the vehicle registration document (for the address you are applying for a permit for) and a utility bill (within the last three months). You can upload these documents during your online application.
Residents can purchase vouchers for their visitors to park within their CPZ area at restricted times shown on parking signs. They can park in resident permit parking spaces without vouchers outside the restricted times.
There are two types of resident CPZs:
- 1-to-4 hour restriction
- All-day restriction
Visitor vouchers come in books of ten. The visitor scratches off the date and time they begin parking.
A book of ten one-hour vouchers for 1-to-4 hour restriction zones costs £7.50. A book of ten half-day vouchers for all-day restriction zones costs £15.
