If you live within a controlled parking zone (CPZ) you can apply for a resident parking permit.
If you are a landlord of a property within a CPZ, you cannot apply for a resident permit. If you have to carry out work, or need to visit the property, you must obtain a visitor permit from the tenant or buy a commercial dispensation.
Where does it cover?
Resident permits are valid for your own area only and should not be used to park when visiting other areas within the zone, such as other households or local amenities.
How much does it cost?
Each resident permit costs £25 per year. Any further/additional permits cost:
- Second additional permit £40
- Third additional permit £70
- Fourth additional permit £100
You are restricted to a maximum of four per household. However there may be some zones where the maximum number may be less.
