Car park permits

If you use a council car park in Gateshead regularly an annual permit may save you money where available. The cost of an annual permit varies depending on its location, the type and duration of the permit.

Depending on the location, permits may be available for three, six or 12 months. No permit may extend beyond the following 31 March.

In many cases, permits can also be issued for specified days. This flexibility may be of use to part time workers, for example, who only need a permit for certain days of the week. In these circumstances the permit charge will be calculated using the day rate. A pro-rata rate applies in these cases, as indicated below.

Part months are charged at the full rate for that month. All permits must be paid for in full before they are issued.

Although we process applications as quickly as we can, please allow up to 15 working days for your permit to be issued.

A £10 administration fee will be deducted from all refunds. In accordance with the scheme terms and conditions, refunds will be made via BACS transfer for any full months left at the time the you hand the permit back. Where payment cannot be made via BACS, then an additional £10 administration fee will be applied.
