Evening frequent users pass

Residents can apply for an evening frequent users pass that lets you park in most off-street car parks and on-street pay and display areas from 5.00pm to 8.30am Mondays to Saturdays, and until 12.30pm on Sundays.

The pass cannot be used in Foss Bank or Piccadilly car parks, as they close in the evening.

Some on-street pay and display bays have waiting restrictions (yellow lines) that are enforceable from 8.00am until 6.00pm. Please note that your permit entitles you to ark at these locations from 6.00pm until 8.00am. The signs displayed at each location will let you know when you can park there.

Non-residents and charities can also apply (using the correct form).

The pass can be used in the following locations:
