Business parking permits

Planned maintenance - Do It Online

Due to planned server maintenance, 'Do It Online' ebilling will be unavailable from 4am to 3pm on Saturday 17 February.

Businesses in most residents' priority parking scheme (ResPark) zones can apply for a business parking permit.

The permit can be used by any member of staff or visitor who has to use their vehicle for business purposes.

To qualify the business 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)

Only one permit will be issued per property, and no visitor parking permits are allowed.

Return your application with the correct payment and proof of your eligibility.
