New Permit Scheme

What to do if you want a Residents' Parking Scheme in your area

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:

  • Having a permit does not guarantee a parking space will be available
  • A permit does not allow you to park on double yellow lines
  • A permit can only be used in a specific scheme area
  • There is a charge for a permit (currently £20 for up to 3 years)
