Types of parking permits

Daily visitor vouchers

Daily visitor vouchers allow visitors to your home or business to temporarily park in your CPZ.

These should be used if you have made a permit application, are waiting for the permit to arrive, and the vehicle is parked in a CPZ.

Resident permit

Resident parking permits allow you to park in a resident permit space where you live.

This permit is only valid when it's in date and on display in the vehicle for which it has been purchased for.

If you have not received your permit within 10 days from it being posted, email

Before you receive your permit, you must use daily visitor vouchers to prevent a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) being issued.

Resident support permit

If you live in a CPZ and have someone who visits you every day or regularly to offer support, you can apply for a resident support permit.

Business permit

Any business in a CPZ can buy annual business parking permits for staff or company vehicles. This will allow you and your employees to park in spaces within the specified zone.
