We have created a number of Residents' Parking Schemes. These schemes aim to protect on-street parking spaces outside people's houses, in areas where parking is limited, and problems are caused by parking by commuters and shoppers, etc.
Parking in a residents' parking area when it is in operation without a valid permit is not allowed and you are likely to get a parking ticket.
If you do have a parking permit you should be aware that this does not guarantee you a place to park your vehicle, it only gives you permission to do so if space is available.
We receive a large number of requests for residents’ parking schemes. Therefore, there are a number of criteria which must be met before a scheme can be considered. The request must have the support of at least one Ward Councillor and at least 60% of the properties included must be in favour of a scheme. There must also be less than 40% of parking spaces available during the daytime. Before undertaking a parking survey, we would need to receive a petition showing that a large number of households are in support of a scheme. Some important things to remember about residents’ parking schemes are:
Known as MiPermit, the digital scheme is paperless and operates in a similar way to the car tax system.
In order to apply for a digital permit, residents will need to either:
Changing the vehicle registration on your Visitor's Permit
Paying by Cheque
if you wish to pay for your permit by Cheque,
Permits are only valid in the Zone for which they are issued.
Please note we no longer issue Visitor Permit scratchcards.
