Permits for residents, businesses and carers last for one year and must be renewed after the expiry date. You must purchase a permit for each vehicle registered under your name. Permits are limited to three per person.

Resident permit prices are based on vehicle engine size.

Blue badge holders can apply for a resident permit free of charge.

Residents can purchase vouchers for their visitors to park within their CPZ area at restricted times shown on parking signs. They can park in resident permit parking spaces without vouchers outside the restricted times.

There are two types of resident CPZs:

  • 1-to-4 hour restriction
  • All-day restriction

Visitor vouchers come in books of ten. The visitor scratches off the date and time they begin parking.

A book of ten one-hour vouchers for 1-to-4 hour restriction zones costs £7.50. A book of ten half-day vouchers for all-day restriction zones costs £15.
