Apply for a business permit

How to apply for a permit if you’re the owner of a business in a residents parking zone


If you are the principal occupier of a business in a resident parking area, you may apply for the issue of a business permit. The permit allows you to park your vehicle in one of our parking zones. Only one annual business permit will be issued per property.

The resident parking zones are:

The permit is for vehicles that will be parked on the street within the residents parking zone. A permit is not needed for parking on your business driveway.

You may also apply for one annual visitor permit or up to 365 virtual permits per property per year. However, if you have an annual visitor permit you will not be eligible for both. Once you have registered your details for virtual permits, you can purchase them as and when your visitors require them.

To apply for a business permit you'll need:

  • a utility bill for the business
  • your car registration number
  • your vehicles DVLA registration document

Apply for a business permit or vouchers

Permit prices

  • Business annual - £150 each
  • Business visitor annual - £50 each
  • Business virtual permits - £1 per day, sold in multiples of five

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.
