Video guide to applying

After you apply

Permits start when you receive an email confirming that your permit is active. 

Depending on the type of permit purchased, approval may be instant or if it requires verification, it may take up to 10 working days after the day you make your application.

Residents who are not eligible for a permit

Homeowners and tenants living in some properties may not be eligible for a parking permit, due to planning conditions originally agreed upon with the developer.

This is known as the Section 106 agreement for car-free or capped housing. Check with your landlord or the person who sold you the property. 

We cannot check if you're eligible unless you apply for a permit.
