Parking Permits for Car Parks
How to apply for and renew a car park permit
Parking permits let you pay for parking in advance, which is convenient and good value if you often need to park in car parks or on the street in a controlled zone.
To be eligible, you should have sole use of a vehicle (eg. you don't share or borrow the vehicle). It should be:
- a passenger vehicle
- registered to your address in Shepway
- no more than 4.8 metres long, 2.4 metres wide and 1.8 metres high
If you can't get a parking permit (eg. if you live outside the area), you can still save by buying a car park season ticket.
Prices of season tickets:
|Type of Season Ticket||Annual Cost||6 Month Cost||3 Month Cost|
|Valid 7 days per week||£657||£329||£165|
|Valid 6 days per week||£560||£280||£140|
|Valid 5 days per week||£468||£234||£117|
|Valid 4 days per week||£374||£187||£94|
|Valid 3 days per week||£280||£140||£70|

Residents' car park permits
A residents' car park permit lets you park for up to 3 hours in long-stay council car parks, and up to 2 hours in short-stay car parks. You must not exceed the maximum stay limit for the car park, and you can only use the permit once per day.
The permit costs £52 for 1 year. You can apply for one if you live anywhere in Shepway.
You can apply for a permit using the forms listed on the right hand column.
