How does a residents' parking permit work?

A residents' permit does not guarantee you a space to park in your street, however it does allow your vehicle to park at any time within the zone in which you live. These zones are called controlled parking zones (CPZs).

With an ePermit, you no longer need to display a physical permit in your vehicle. Instead civil enforcement officers will carry out permit checks using the vehicle registration mark.

If you are a motorcycle owner you will be required to apply for a residents' permit.

Talking to us about someone else’s permit

Please be aware, if you would like to discuss or amend a parking permit on behalf of someone else i.e. you are not the owner of the permit, we need the written permission of the permit holder before being able to proceed.

You can give us written permission by sending an email to our permits processing team

Car free housing (S106 agreements)

Camden has operated for some time now a number of car free housing schemes where, with the exception of disabled drivers, there is a no on-site or on-street parking permitted.

These are referred to as S106 agreements, which are written into planning consents when new developments and redevelopments are agreed. This means that you will need to check your lease, freehold or tenancy agreement before applying for a resident parking permit, to make sure that your property is not subject to one of these restrictions.

If you obtain a permit when you are not entitled to one and we later withdraw it, we will not refund the remainder of the fee. This is outlined in the current terms and conditions. It is your responsibility as the applicant to make sure you are entitled to do so in line with the terms and conditions in force.

Save £10

If you renew your permit online, you'll save £10 on the price – please note this does not apply in cases where changes have been made to your account that require further approval.

This discount only applies to the emission based resident permit and not the resident electric vehicle and motorcycle permits.
