Resident parking permit

If you're a resident within a controlled parking zone who owns, keeps or has sole use of a vehicle, you can buy a resident parking permit.

You can find out which controlled parking zone you live in by viewing our controlled parking zone map.

If you own a property within a controlled parking zone but don't live there, you're not entitled to a resident's permit.

Some properties in controlled parking zones which have been built in the last ten years are part of car free developments where the resident does not have the right to apply for a parking permit.  Visit our planning applications search for more information.
