Get residents' parking permits
Our residents' parking permits are digital. You can apply for and manage your permits online. You don't need to display anything in your vehicle and your permit will be active straight after your application has been approved and paid for.
You cannot get residents' parking permits for most new homes built since:
- 13 October 2005 in the Central Parking Zone
- 1 August 2018 in residents' parking scheme (RPS) areas
These developments are know as car free or low car developments.
Go to Restrictions on parking permits for car free or low car developments to check if you:
- live in a car free or low car development
- can apply for a parking permit

Existing paper permits
If you have paper residents' parking permits you should continue to display the permits in your vehicle. When they expire you can apply for digital permits.
See how to:
- replace your paper permit if it has been damaged, lost or stolen
- tell us about a change such as new address, change of vehicle or you want to cancel your permit
We'll give you a refund of unused time on your permit then you'll need to apply for a digital permit if you need one.
