Types of permits
Resident and business parking permits
A resident or business permit entitles a specific vehicle to park within the appropriate resident parking zone during the hours of operation. Each property located within a zone can apply for any combination of resident and business permits up to the maximum of 5 permits per property. These permits will be issued to a specific vehicle, can not be transferred and must be displayed in the windscreen of your vehicle.
4-hour reusable visitor permits
Displaying the 4-hour reusable visitor permit entitles any vehicle to park within the appropriate zone during the hours of operation. This permit will be automatically issued to the first successful applicant for a resident or business parking permit from each property. This permit can be transferred between vehicles.
Visitor scratch cards
Displaying the 4-hour and 24-hour visitor scratch cards entitles a specific vehicle to park within the appropriate zone during the hours of operation.
Scratch cards will be automatically issued to the first successful resident at each property. These permits are not available to businesses.
Every residential property is entitled to 50 x 4-hour single use visitor scratch cards and 50 x 24-hour single use visitor scratch cards.
Tradesperson and service provider
If you need to access one of the resident parking zones in order to provide a service, such as window cleaning, you can apply for a 4-hour reusable service provider permit.
Landlords that require access to the resident parking zones can apply for visitor scratch cards for the zone the tenanted property is within.
The council has a process for considering discretionary permit applications where the standard criteria are not met. Please note that each application will be considered on an individual basis and must be accompanied by sufficient evidence to justify your case. These can only be issued for a limited time.
