Visitor parking permits

Visitor parking permits are available for residents living within a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) to buy from the Parking Shop. Various restrictions apply depending on which zone they are used in. See tables below for prices.

To buy, you will need to provide proof of residency, such as a council tax or utility bill or bank statement dated in the last 3 months.

If you live in a new development

If you live in a new development you may not be able to apply for either a resident permit or visitor permits to park on surrounding roads. You may be able to purchase a non-resident permit, but this will depend on availability.

To find out if your property is affected contact our Parking Services Team on:

Non-resident parking permits

If you work in a CPZ but do not live in the same zone, you can apply for a non-resident parking permit. These are issued for a specified road only, not the entire zone. Please see business parking permits for details.
