Parking in residents zones

Residents' parking schemes, permits for visitors, carers and trades people

We operate resident's parking schemes in Eastleigh, Chandler's Ford and Hamble.  You can find out if your residential address is within a controlled zone from your MyEastleigh account.

You may be issued with a paper permit which must be clearly displayed in the windscreen of your vehicle.  From September we have introduced a digital permit scheme for some permit types.

If you have a permit, you can park your vehicle in a residents' parking bay within the designated zone. The permit can only be used for a single vehicle - it is not transferable. You must park within the marked bays and the bays are not subject to waiting restrictions.  There are some designated sections of roads within the parking zones that offer up to two or four hours free parking as indicated on the adjacent road signs. All vehicles may use these parking bays for the time period specified.  View our full terms and conditions.

If you have a Disabled Person's badge or a Professional Carer's permit, you may park your vehicle in a residents' parking bay although there is a three hour limit for a professional carer.

The scheme operates at the following times:

Zones 1 to 8: 8am to 8pm Monday to Saturday (except Bank Holidays);

Zone 9: 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday (except Bank Holidays); and

Zone 11: 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday (except Bank Holidays). 

Outside of these times, the parking bays are available for all vehicles including those without permits. 

The following types of permit are available to residents and businesses within controlled zones:

Eastleigh Residents parking scheme 

Hamble Residents parking scheme
