Terms and conditions of a visitor's parking permit

  1. It is your responsibility to make sure your visitor is aware of the conditions of use of their permit.

  2. The permit must be filled out with a permanent pen and displayed in the windscreen face up so that the information can be easily read from outside the vehicle.

  3. The permit allows the vehicle registration detailed on the permit to park in a designated marked parking bay in the area shown on the face of the permit and on the date completed.

  4. If the details on the permit are not filled out correctly in permanent ink pen, then it is invalid and should not be used.

  5. If these conditions are not followed it could result in a Parking Fine or Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) being issued.

  6. This permit remains the property of the Council at all times.  

On-street resident permits and visitor permits are going digital

Within the next few months a digital parking permit system called MiPermit will be introduced. The MiPermit system enables residents who live in controlled parking zones to buy and manage digital on-street Resident and Visitor Permits online or via their mobile device. The new system is easy to use, giving greater control:

  • Activating your Visitor Permit will be immediate, you only need to update the registration number online

  • Your visitor will not be required to display a paper permit

  • You will no longer have to wait for paper permits to arrive by post

  • Saves paper, printing and postage

When it is time to buy your MiPermitdigitalparking permit, you will need your Council Tax account number. If you do not know your number, the person named on the bill can request a copy of your bill.

Our Commitment

  • We aim to post your permits by the end of the next working day.
  • If we are unable to process your request, we will contact you.
