  • a letter from the Company (on headed paper) confirming you can have a Business permit.
  • proof of ownership – such as a copy of the Vehicle Registration Document or insurance certificate
  • vehicle and personal details
  • a letter from the registered owner confirming that you keep it if you do not own the vehicle

Each business may apply for up to two permits. Business permits last for one year. 

Businesses located in controlled parking zones may also apply for visitor parking permits. Find out if your business is located within a controlled parking zone.

Businesses visitor permits can only be used in any permit bay within the sector that the visitors permits are issue for. These bays will be signed as Residents permit bay, Residents/Business permit bay or Permit Holders only.
