You can apply online. You will need to upload a photo (or scan) of your vehicle registration document and proof of address.
Your proof of address can include:
- your driving licence
- a council tax bill
- a valid tenancy agreement
- a solicitor’s letter confirming purchase of property
- a utility bill from the last three months showing the address in the residents' zone.
You will also need a copy of your vehicle registration documents (V5C) pages 1 and 2. The registration document must be in your name and registered to the permit address.
If your vehicle is registered to an old address or you have the new keeper supplement, you can still apply online. We will give you a temporary, non-refundable permit. You have six weeks to provide the documents or we will cancel your permit
You will need to pay for your permit (see below for prices). As soon as you have finished the online application and paid, you are covered to park in the residents' zone. You won't be sent a paper permit as resident parking permits are now 'virtual'. Find out which roads are covered in your zone, as there may be some restrictions in your area.
If you can't apply online, you can apply by e-mail, post or at the Civic Offices parking desk instead. You will need to bring the same documents as above. You can pay:
- by card over the phone,
- cheque by post,
- cash, cheque or card at the Civic Offices.
Please wait 7 to 10 days for your permit to start if you apply by post or e-mail.
