Apply for or renew a parking permit

Please allow up to 5 working days to process your application. After we've reviewed and authorised your application, you'll receive an email explaining how to make payment and activate your permit. Your permit will not be valid until payment is made.

What do I need to provide with my application?

You must provide a valid email address and submit proof of address and proof of vehicle ownership. Documents must be in the same name as your application and if you're providing bills or bank statements, these should be recent examples no more than six months old.

New vehicles and company vehicles

For vehicles purchased in the last 3 months, you'll need to submit either the bill of sale or new keeper supplement and your insurance certificate.

For company vehicles, we need a letter from your company on headed paper confirming that the vehicle is owned or leased by the company and you're the sole user.

What happens next?

We'll send you a parking clock once your application has been authorised. On parking, set the parking clock at the time of arrival, and display inside the front windscreen so it is clearly visible from the outside of the vehicle.
