How to apply for a residents parking permit in one of our resident parking zones
Permit parking scheme
We run a parking permit scheme for residents who live within parking zones in King's Lynn. We work alongside Norfolk County Council to run this.
If your property falls within one of the resident parking zones, you'll be eligible to apply for a permit.
The resident parking zones are:
- KR02 - South Quay and King's Staithe Square
- KR03 - Portland Street & Waterloo Street
- KR04 - Highgate and Eastgate Area
- KR06 - Springwood
The permit is for vehicles that will be parked on the street within the residents parking zone. You do not need a permit to park on your driveway.
Any resident with a vehicle registered at an address within one of the zones can apply for a permit. If your household has more than one vehicle registered to your address, both vehicles will need a permit to park on the street.
If you have regular visitors to your property, you can also apply for a visitor permit. And if you're a business within the parking zones, you can apply for a business permit. To find out more, please visit our:
Motorbikes, mopeds and all powered two wheelers do not require a permit.
How to apply
The easiest way to apply is online. You can upload the required documentation with your application.
To apply for a residents parking permit you'll need:
- your vehicle registration number
- the vehicles DVLA registration document (the address on the DVLA document should match your permit application)
- a Council Tax bill or utility bill
- your tenancy agreement (if you rent)
- Resident annual - £50 each
What happens next?
Once we've processed your application, we'll notify you by email. As it's a virtual permit, you won't need to display a permit. Once we've confirmed your application as complete, you'll be able to park.
You'll need to renew your permit each year. We'll email you four weeks in advance of your permit needing renewal.
Blue badge holders
Home and business owners that have a valid blue badge are entitled to a free permit, one per property. You'll need to display the blue badge on your windscreen at all times.
If you have a company vehicle, you'll need to supply a letter from your employer on letter headed paper confirming:
- the details of the vehicle they have provided to you
- it is for your sole use
- it is kept at the property address
