Residents within many larger housing developments are excluded from joining the residents' priority parking scheme (ResPark).
This is in accordance with government guidelines and our policy of discouraging increased car ownership within central areas of the city.
The exclusion of larger developments, such as blocks of flats or apartments, from the ResPark scheme prevents on-street parking from becoming overloaded in these areas.
Developers are made aware of any exclusions within the area at the planning stage and should make purchasers and tenants aware of any parking restrictions.
Permits available to residents of housing developments
Although larger developments may be excluded from the ResPark scheme, other options are available if you find your property is excluded.

- Resident contract permit (if you live within the city walls)
- Season tickets for parking (in a number of car parks across York)
- York residents' Minster Badge (discounts during the day and free parking after a certain time, in most of our car parks and on-street pay and display bays)
