Apply for a resident parking permit

The application form will ask you to upload images that show:

  • proof of residency – a recent (last 3 months) bank statement, utility bill, council tax bill or rent card
  • proof of vehicle ownership – for UK vehicles this would be a copy of your V5 registration document

If you use a company vehicle you should upload an image of a letter, on company headed paper, that shows the vehicle registration number and your name and address as an employee. This letter would be instead of the proof of vehicle ownership, but you must still provide a separate proof of residency.

You can upload images direct from your own computer or smartphone.

We normally process applications within 2 weeks of receipt.

Change of address

If you are moving to a new property you will not be able to apply for a resident parking permit until your vehicle registration document has been updated to show your new address.

While waiting for this to happen, you can apply for visitor parking permits using your solicitors' letter or tenancy agreement as proof of address. You can use a visitor parking permit to park your own vehicle.
