You can apply for a HMO parking permit if you live in a house in multiple occupancy property occupied by unrelated tenants, each with a self-contained, lockable room.
An HMO permit allows you to park in community and guest house bays only.
Apply for a HMO parking permit
The first person in a household to register for a HMO permit is issued with an authorisation card which is shared with all residents in the HMO property in order to buy visitor permits.
Return your application with a copy of your vehicle registration document (with relevant address) and the correct payment and proof of your address using any one of the following documents:
- council tax bill
- utility bill dated in the last 3 months (telephone landline, water, gas)
- driving licence
- existing authorisation card
- proof that your name appears on the current edited electoral roll (the edited electoral role is the one that is open to the general public to view)
- pension/benefit book
- tenancy agreement
