On street parking permits

Resident on street parking permits

We provide residents parking permits in certain areas in the District. In some cases only part of the road may be included in the scheme. If it is unclear if the permit scheme applies to where you live, please contact us.

Permits are provided on a sliding scale of charges. This means that those who park more cars on the road will pay more for their permits. 

The increasing scale of charges also encourage residents to make better use of their off-street parking spaces. Those with no off-street parking and only one vehicle can park at a lower rate.

Fees

If you have no off street spaces, the costs are:

  • 1st permit - £35
  • 2nd permit - £70
  • 3rd permit - £125
  • 4th permit - £250

If you have one off street space, the costs are:

  • 1st permit - £70
  • 2nd permit - £125
  • 3rd permit - £250
  • 4th permit - £250

If you have two off street spaces, the costs are:

  • 1st permit - £125
  • 2nd permit - £250
  • 3rd permit - £250

If you have three off street spaces, the costs are:

  • 1st permit - £250
  • 2nd permit - £250
  • 3rd permit - £250

If you are a Blue Badge holder, the costs are:

Permit costs, including those for properties with a free blue badge or electric vehicle permit, are calculated based on the number of off street spaces at the property and the number of permits held, including those issued for free.
