Before you start you will need proof of:

  • your address
  • vehicle ownership.

Address proof

Valid options for proof of address include:

  • Council Tax bills
  • utility bills
  • bank statements.

Documents we do not accept include:

  • vehicle documentation
  • private landlord tenancy agreements
  • polling cards.

Your proof of address must be in your name and dated in the past 3 months.

Vehicle proof

To apply for a resident parking permit, you must be the owner of the vehicle. This does not apply to those who drive a company vehicle. 

You will need to provide a copy of your vehicle registration document (logbook or full updated V5C) or insurance policy which includes your name, address and vehicle registration.

We do not accept the V5C 2 (New Keeper's Slip) as proof of vehicle ownership as you're no longer required to complete your address in section 6.

For company vehicles

If you drive a company vehicle you must provide a letter from your employer on company headed paper to confirm:

  • your name 
  • home address
  • details of the company vehicle you drive.

Your proof must be clear and readable.

A resident parking permit costs £33.
