Paperless parking permits

We are currently unable to issue physical paper permits. Once your permit has been issued it will become virtual and appear on our system as valid straight away. Our officers on street are able to check this information.

Where’s my PIN number?

If you're eligible to renew online we’ll send you a PIN number in your reminder letter in the month your permit is due to expire.

We'll only include a PIN number in the reminder if you are a current permit holder, registered for council tax and your name is on the council tax account. You also have to be up to date with your council tax payments and have made no changes to your permit in the last 12 months.

If your reminder letter doesn't include a PIN number please use the paper application form to renew your permit. The renewal process is the same as applying for the first time, so please follow the application process set out below.

Apply or renew by post or email

You may prefer to, or have to, apply or renew using the paper application or renewal form, for example if you are a tenant and the council tax account is not in your name.

Failed card and cheque payments

Temporary parking permits

If you’re new to the borough or are applying for the first time and don’t have all the required documents, don’t worry, you can apply and pay for a permit as long as you can supply some of the required documentation as explained below. We will then issue a temporary permit and you have 30 days to submit the rest of the required documentary evidence. When we have received the rest of your proofs and we have verified that you are eligible for a full permit we will upgrade your permit to a full permit.

You can apply online for the temporary permit but only if you are registered for council tax at the permit address and have a full UK driving licence. If you don't have both these proofs you must apply using the paper application form.

Parking permit application form (pdf 98KB)

We need you to provide the following proofs along with your paper application form before we can issue a temporary permit:

  • proof of your main address in H&F
  • proof that you are the main user and keeper of the vehicle
  • and proof that you have a driving licence that is valid in the UK.

Documentary evidence and eligibility

Whether you have applied online or using the paper application form, if you haven’t been able to supply all the required documents straight away, you will need to supply further documentary evidence within 30 days so we can upgrade your permit to a full permit.

Payment for the full year's parking permit will be taken as part of the application process when you apply on line or by post and is non-refundable so please make sure that you are eligible for the full permit before you apply.

If you cannot supply the documentary evidence required we will cancel the permit and you will not get a refund.

Car free address visitor permit

The car free address visitor permit is issued to addresses that are blocked from applying from a residents permit. Residents who live at addresses that are not eligible for resident permits, can apply for a car free address visitor permit to activate a free session to allow their visitors to drive through the camera controlled access points on streets that are in the South Fulham TCPR scheme area. If the visitor wishes to park on street, they can then either use pay and display on street or their own RingGo account to purchase parking time on street.

Please make sure you're eligible for these permits before you complete the application. If you're not eligible, we cancel your application and you have to submit a new one.
