Parking permits for visitors, carers and trades people

Visitor Permits
If you live within a controlled zone, you will be entitled to a number of free visitor parking permits.  These allow your visitors to park in designated residents’ parking bays near to your home. Visitor permits allow all day parking in designated Residents' Parking Bays, but are not valid in Limited Waiting Bays or Pay & Display bays (including Shared Use bays). The permit must be displayed in the windscreen of the car. The number of permits you will receive depends on the number of adults (aged 18 and over) in your household and the parking zone you live in.

Carers’ permits
If you are infirm, disabled or housebound and receive help from regular visitors, you can receive free carers’ permits. This allows your visitor to unrestricted parking within your zone.


Temporary Visitor Permit 
This allows non-residents to park all day in designated Residents' Parking Bays in any zone, but are not valid in Limited Waiting Bays or Pay & Display bays (including Shared Use bays). The charge is £42 for six days' parking (valid for a six day period).

The permit should be completed in ink with the vehicle registration number, the day and date the permit is being used and the zone number you are parking in. Do not overwrite or re-use any section as this invalidates the permit.

The Council reserves the right to refuse to issue visitors' permits in certain circumstances.

Trades persons' permits
You can give a trades person one of your visitor permits or alternatively they can purchase a temporary visitor permit.


Professional carers’ permits
This permit allows doctors, home helps, social workers and others who regularly visit an elderly or infirm resident up to three hours parking valid in all parking zones. The charge for this permit £60.
