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.

Save £10

If you renew online you'll save £10 on the price of your permit - 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.
