Parking charges and permits
Emergency parking in residents parking management schemes
The issuing of free emergency residential permits has now closed. Those permits in circulation will continue to be honoured, however this may withdrawn at short notice and you are advised to check this page regularly for updates.
This permit was introduced to accommodate the higher than normal number of residents' vehicles that were being parked on residential streets in response to the national stay at home guidance.
Residents with permits or visitor vouchers in parking management schemes (PMSs) are permitted to park in bays and on single yellow lines within their zone and without penalty, provided that they display a permit or visitor voucher for that particular PMS and are not parked obstructively or dangerously. For example, corners of junctions, on footways, across dropped kerbs and on double yellow lines.
We also ask residents to consider the impact of where they are parked on access needs and safety. If vehicles are parked in a dangerous or obstructive position then a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) may be issued.
Residents that need to renew the existing permit, or apply for a new one can continue to do so by visiting the parking permits page.
