Parking permits

We have placed a hold on all permit purchases or renewals so there is no need for you to purchase or renew any permit at this time. Parking enforcement of permit zones, pay and display bays, business and shared use bays has ceased for the time being in order to help key workers, people working from home, those self-isolating, or shielding vulnerable or sick residents.

Parking bay suspensions (formerly waivers)

Parking waivers can be used by your removal company, builder or contractor to suspend a parking bay for their use.

They allow all day parking in restricted areas such as:

  • resident bays
  • business bays 
  • pay and display bays 
  • on yellow lines

To apply you will need:

  • details of the business such as name and address 
  • reason for the waiver
  • location of the waiver – where the work is being carried out
  • vehicle details, such as registration number, make and model
  • address for the permit to be sent to if that’s different from the business address
  • the period the waiver should cover
  • documents confirming the works being carried out, such as a plan or invoice
  • a contact number for us to call and take payment

Cost

Price per parking space per day (1 - 14 days) £35

Price per parking space per day (15th and subsequent days) £40

Once the application has been received you will be contacted for payment. The permit will then be sent out in the post.

If you experience any problems applying for a permit, or if you have any questions, please contact us using our online enquiry form​​.

We have placed a hold on all permit purchases or renewals so there is no need for you to purchase or renew any permit at this time. Please do not apply.
