Business parking permits

Businesses in most resident parking zones can apply for a business permit. To qualify they must:

  • pay business rates directly to the council for a business within a respark zone
  • have no off street parking at the property (this includes space that is being used for purposes other than parking)
  • not be living at the business (if you do live at the premises, you may be entitled to a household permit)

The permit can be used by any member of staff or visitor who has to use their vehicle for business purposes. Only one permit per property, and no 'visitor permits' are allowed.

Return the form, with evidence of eligibility and the correct payment to: FREEPOST RTEG-TYYU-KLTZ
