Montpelier residents' parking scheme
Maps, costs, and information on where and when you can park in the Montpelier residents' parking scheme (RPS).
This scheme started on 6 July 2015.
We’re proposing some changes to the Montpelier RPS following our review of the scheme.
You can let us know what you think about the proposed changes later this year, when we’ll advertise a new Traffic Regulation Order for the scheme.

You can apply for 100 visitors’ permits each year.

You don’t have to apply for all of your visitors' permits in one go. You can apply for more permits, up to the annual limit of 100, at any time during the year.
If you're getting short-term or long-term care in your own home you might be able to get a free Essential Visitors' Permit (EVP).
