Resident's or business parking permits
With ever-increasing pressure on parking spaces, we have changed the process for issuing parking permits. This is to prevent fraud and to ensure that only genuine residents are issued with a permit.
We apply strict criteria when considering permit applications. If you are a resident or have business premises in a controlled parking zone, you may be eligible to apply.
Permits cannot be issued to vehicles over 7ft 6in /2.28m in height.
Smart visitor permits
Refunds are available if you no longer require your parking permit. Refunds are calculated according to the date we receive your permit and refund request, as follows;
1. The original cost of the permit is divided by the duration of the permit (i.e. by 6 or 12 months) to give a monthly refund amount.
2. The monthly refund amount is multiplied by the number of full calendar months remaining on the permit, up to its expiry date.
3. The refund amount is then rounded down to the nearest whole pound (£).
Parking permit refunds are issued by cheque, normally within 14 working days of the date that we receive your refund request. Please note that refunds are not available for temporary residents' parking permits - these must first be upgraded to a regular permit.
