Resident Parking Permits

You can apply for a residents parking permit if you're a resident of a street where there is resident only parking or limited waiting parking with exemption for residents

 

Your vehicle must not exceed 2.44m (8ft) in height and 5.49m (18ft) in length.

 

Resident parking permits are annual and valid until the end of the issuing month the following year. (i.e. if you apply 02 April 2015, the permit would expire 30 April 2016).

 

The provision of resident parking permits specifically precludes new developments which would be expected to provide suitable parking on site.

 

Resident parking permit holders must ensure that:

  • The permit is displayed clearly in the windscreen of your vehicle
  • The  permit is valid and not expired
  • The registration number and street is correct

All permits have holograms and are issued using a special pen with fade and water resistant ink. Your permit will show the street that the permit is valid for including the vehicle registration mark and date of expiry. Any other markings or attempt at defacing the permit will automatically null & void the permit and the Civil Enforcement Officer (CEO) can take action & issue a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).

 

What You Need to Apply

To apply for a permit you must provide evidence that you live at the address and have proof of ownership or use of the vehicle. Please remember to enclose a copy of your evidence of residency and car ownership. Do not send original documents, photocopies are accepted.

 

For proof of residency one of the following must be provided:

  • Utility Bill
  • Driving Licence
  • Pension book
  • Letter from public body or solicitor, tenancy agreement or rent book

 

For proof of ownership or use of vehicle one of the following must be provided:

  • Vehicle registration document - (logbook / V5)
  • Certificate of motor insurance - (showing vehicle registration and name)
  • Letter authorising vehicle use from the owner - (e.g. Company car)

 

Please Note: If you are applying in person please remember to take your relevant documents to the reception desk at the Docks Office. The permit will be issued upon satisfactory receipt of the residency and vehicle proof requirements above.

  • Issued to visitors who are temporarily residing at a property (i.e visiting family members or friends who are temporarily residing at the property) - It is not intended for friends popping over to go shopping or commuting.
  • Temporary permits can be issued for a minimum of 3 days to a maximum of one month and can only be issued up to a maximum of 3 times in succession for each visiting vehicle / property.
  • We can't just keep handing them out as it would set a prescendence and be open to abuse, taking away spaces from those genuine residents who need them on a daily basis.

Replacement Parking Permits

If your parking permit has been lost, stolen or destroyed or you have changed your vehicle and you cannot return the  parking permit, you can apply for a replacement at the Docks Office.

 

 

Restrictions

One permit per person per property(residential use only, not for business users).

 

If you own or have use of more than one vehicle you have to nominate which vehicle you wish to use the permit for. The current procedure allows a resident to have one permit per car per property which is seen as a fair and consistent approach to give all residents a reasonable chance of finding a parking space.

 

The Council gets many requests for permits. However, if a resident has a personal car and a company car for instance, they would have to choose which car to use the permit on. I am sure that you can appreciate if we gave one resident 2 or more permits, then parking spaces would be rapidly taken up which other residents could make use of, which would not be a fair approach.

 

We do intend to review these procedures at a future date to determine if any changes are necessary to enhance the flexibility and fairness of the scheme for the residents concerned. This review may include the consideration of different permit types or the introduction of zonal parking in line with other neighbouring authorities.

 

As you may be aware, the Council does not currently charge for residents parking; although no doubt this matter will be included in any future review.
