Resident's visitor parking permits

Resident visitor permits enable a resident's visitor to park for a three hour period in a controlled parking zone.

Permits will be issued to residents only.

Residents should purchase their visitor permits in advance and give them to their visitors when required. The permits may only be used in the zone for which they are issued and are not valid for any other controlled parking zone in the borough.

There are two types of visitor permit:

Visitor scratchcards

These come in a pack of ten cards. They can only be used once and full instructions for use are on the scratchcard.

Visitor disc

These are a reusable disc. Only one per property can be issued and only residents who have a disabled Blue Badge may apply. A disc is valid for three years.

Each household may buy up to four packs of ten scratchcards per application, or per month. If there is a disabled Blue Badge holder resident at the property, they may apply for one visitor disc (one per household).
