All resident parking zones are operational.
Discount on renew for unused permits
Residential parking zone permit holders will receive a discount of 18.6% the next time they renew permits from 1 June. The discount is based on the duration of the enforcement suspension which was just over 2 months. Most discounts will happen automatically, however we will manually apply refunds to holders of second or third permits.
For example the discount on the first permit will be £5.60 so when you renew your permit you will be charged £24.40.
If you apply online the amount payable for a second/third permit will be reduced by the same amount as the first permit on purchase. The rest of the reduction will be refunded manually by the parking office, as soon as practically possible, either back onto the debit/credit card used to make payment or by cheque.
