Using a proof of residency permit

From September 2021 we're moving towards digital parking permits; paper authorisation cards will be phased out as they expire, and replaced with digital 'proof of residency' permits.

If you have a valid paper authorisation card, issued prior to September 2021:

  • you can still use it to purchase visitor parking permits until it expires, you'll need to contact parking service to purchase them over the phone
  • you don't need a separate digital proof of residency permit
  • you can register to use our digital Permit Portal after your paper authorisation card expires

You must apply for a digital proof of residency permit if you don't have a household parking permit, but still want to be able to apply for daily digital visitor parking permits.

The type of digital proof of residency permit you need depends on your circumstances. You must select the appropriate permit type when making your purchase:

  • Proof of Residency Permit (Income Support)
  • Proof of Residency Permit (Universal Credit)
  • Proof of Residency Permit (Pensioner)
  • Proof of Residency Permit (Disabled)

Please note: The Proof of Residency Permit (Independent) is for standard priced visitor permits only and should only be purchased if you are not eligible for any discounts, and you do not intend to buy a household permit.
