Proof of residence and vehicle ownership

To issue a parking permit we will need to see proof of residence and vehicle ownership, you will need to provide one item from each of the lists below.

If you upload your evidence with your application before 5:30pm you can park your car the next day.

If you upload your evidence with your application after 5:30pm you can park your car two days later.

If you cannot upload proofs, they must be supplied within 14 days and you will not be able to park until you have received your permit.

Some residents may be able to apply for an off-peak season ticket to park in one of the town car parks.      

Payment and restrictions

The first permit is £50, subsequent permits are £75 each.

The number of permits issued to a household is limited and will be calculated by the number of vehicles registered minus the number of off street spaces at that property.
