Get visitors' permits

Our visitors' parking permits are digital. You don't need to own a vehicle to apply for visitors' parking permits.

You cannot get visitors' 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 known 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

If you cannot get visitors' parking permits, find out where your visitors can pay to park.

This does not apply to blue badge holders who do not need a permit to park.

If you get care from friends, family or a medical professional you can apply for an Essential Visitors Permit (EVP) or a Medical Permit to allow them to park.

Use visitors' permits

Your visitors don't need to display anything in their vehicle. You'll need to allocate a permit to your visitors' vehicle for their visit.

You must activate your visitor permits when you want to use them. Each digital visitor parking permit is valid for one vehicle for one day during the parking scheme's hours of operation.

If you know when your visitors are coming, you can activate their permit up to 2 weeks in advance. Activate the permit with your visitors' registration number and the date of their visit.

If plans change, you can cancel any visitor sessions as long as they haven't started. 

You can swap a vehicle registration number on any activated visitor permit. Log in to MiPermit or call 0345 520 7007.
