Parking permit application documents

You will need to supply certain documents when you apply for a parking permit permit or visitor vouchers for the first time.

The following documents are required to issue parking permits and need to be resubmitted every 2 years.


Resident Parking Permit


Visitor Vouchers


Business Parking Permit



University students who are living in the area must ensure their vehicle is registered or insured to the permit address to be able to apply for a resident permit. Vehicles must be shown to be registered and insured at the permit address you are applying for e.g. the student accommodation/HMO. We no longer accept a vehicle document unless it clearly shows the house number and road name, showing just the postcode will not be acceptable. It is up to the resident to pay any additional costs insurance companies charge to ensure your vehicle is insured at your university residential address.

No resident parking permits will be issued if a vehicle is shown to be insured and registered elsewhere e.g. away from the permit address.
