To apply for, renew amend or cancel a resident parking permit, you will need to login or create a Camden Account.

A resident parking permit does not guarantee you a parking space but enables you to park in your controlled parking zone (CPZ).

To apply for a permit you must:

  • be a Camden resident and live in your property for at least 5 nights per week
  • not live in a car free housing property

You can only apply for one permit for each resident.

Cancel a permit and get a refund

If you move out of Camden, dispose of or sell your vehicle, you can apply for a refund of the remainder of your parking permit. A refund for a cancelled permit will be calculated based on the number of full months remaining on your permit. Charges for 2nd and 3rd vehicles and the diesel surcharge are non-refundable.

Before applying for a refund, please log in to your Camden account and cancel the permit on your account. This will calculate the correct amount due and will return you to this page allowing you to complete the refund request. 

Do not apply for a refund if your v5c has not been uploaded to your permit account or if the permit has been cancelled by us for a breach of the terms and conditions, such as not meeting the qualifying criteria when applying or renewing your permit.

You will have 30 minutes to complete the application. Refunds will normally be made back to the card used for payment. If the payment card has been cancelled or you have been asked to provide bank details, please select the expired card option when asked. 

Refunds may take up to 28 days to process.

Talking to us about someone else’s permit

If you would like to discuss or amend a parking permit on behalf of someone else we need the written permission of the permit holder.

The permit holder will need to log into their Camden Account and upload a letter of authorisation. Any customer who requires support with this can contact us on 020 7974 4444 and a member of our Contact Camden team will be able to assist.

Car free housing (S106 agreements)

We do not offer resident parking permits for residents living in car free housing zones

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 terms and conditions for parking permits.
