Use

The permit is only valid for the vehicle associated on your permit, you can check this via your online account. The permit can only be used within the zone it is issued for. Resident permits are valid in residents and shared use residents bays.

Eligibility

Where we are not able to validate your application electronically through our third-party credit reference agency, we will ask you to submit (either electronically or by post) further evidence to assist us to process your application.

If you choose to proceed with your application, we will ask you to pay the full price for the permit you have selected. However, failure to supply the remaining evidence within 30 days or where a fraudulent application has been made, the application will be rejected, and the permit will be cancelled without any refund due to you.

Your vehicle can be either a motorcycle, passenger vehicle or a light goods vehicle with no more than 8 seats. The overall height should not exceed 2.3 metres. The length should not exceed 5.5 metres.

Change of vehicle 

When you change your vehicle, you should immediately update the vehicle associated to your permit via your online account. You will be able to change the vehicle on the permit for a maximum of 3 times in a 12-month period from the date of your first application.

Suspensions 

From time to time, it may be necessary for the Council to suspend a parking bay. This is normally due to road works being carried out by the utility companies, such as water, gas or electricity. Suspensions may also be placed by law enforcement agency or by any other authority to carry out their statutory duties, as well as domestic suspensions for example, removals.

During the period for which the bay is suspended, parking is not permitted in the bay, even if a valid permit exists. A PCN will be issued to any unauthorised vehicle in the bay and the vehicle may be towed away. It is the permit holder's responsibility to ensure that the bay in which their vehicle is parked is not suspended during the time their vehicle is parked there.

Permit refunds

If you no longer require your permit, you may apply for a refund. An administration fee of £5 will be deducted per permit cancelled. The refund amount is calculated on a pro-rata basis. For example, how many full calendar days remain on your permit.

No refund(s) will be given to permit holder(s) where the amount owing is the same or less than the administration fee.

No refund(s) will be issued for permits cancelled or rejected by the Council. No refund(s) will be due if the permit is cancelled due to a fraudulent application being made to obtain a permit illegally.
