Parking permits - residential, visitors and market traders

Carers' parking permits

Residents who receive regular care will normally qualify for a parking permit which can be used by the carer who visits them. With a carers' permit, your carer can park on the residential street where you see signs to say the bays are for Resident Permit holders.

What happens after the application has been approved?

Once the application has been approved, you will receive an email (if you gave us your email address) informing you of the decision. You will also be sent a paper permit in the post which you can give to the carer to display in their car whilst they are at your property. Just remember to collect your permit back before they leave.

What to do when the permit is due to expire

When your permit is due to expire, you will either receive an email or a letter (if you haven't given us your email address) to remind you to renew your carers' permit.
