Property parking permits allow you to park a vehicle in a residents' priority parking scheme (ResPark) zone if you are carrying out building or renovation work at a property within that zone.
Property parking permits can be issued to property owners, or to tradespeople carrying out work on behalf of the owner.
A property parking permit is:
- only valid for one specified resident zone
- limited to one per property
- valid for a maximum of 3 months
- not renewable after the 3 month period has expired
Return your completed application with the correct payment and a photocopy of any required supporting documents.
Daily property parking permits
Daily property permits (commonly known as 'builders' permits') can be issued for more short term works at a property within a ResPark zone.
Return your completed application, specifying the number of daily permits required, with the correct payment and a photocopy of any required supporting documents.
Property parking permit costs
The cost of your permit depends on how long you want the permit for (3 months or 1 day).
There are also 2 different rates available depending on the level of emissions that your vehicle produces and the size of your vehicle.
You may be eligible for a discount dependent on your vehicle type:
- short car parking discounts are available if your car is shorter than 2.7 metres in length
- low emission parking discounts are available for electric/LPG powered cars and cars with emissions up to 120g/km2 (vehicle tax bands A-C)
You can find vehicle tax information on a new or used car online from the Vehicle Certification Agency.
You will be charged the standard rate for any vehicles which do not qualify for the discounted rate.

Changes to your vehicle details
If you are receiving a short car or low emission discount then your permit will be vehicle-specific.
This means that any change to your vehicle details will require a replacement permit, regardless of whether the new vehicle is also eligible for a discount.
You will need to:
- return your permit before a replacement can be issued
- include a letter explaining why you're returning your permit
- provide the new vehicle details
- include the vehicle registration document relating to the new vehicle (if the new vehicle is eligible for a discount)
- make a top-up payment for the remaining period of cover (if the new vehicle is not eligible for a discount)
- include a covering letter from the lease company or your employer confirming that you are allowed to use the vehicle (if the new vehicle is a lease/company vehicle)
The replacement will be issued with the same expiry date as the previous permit. Please allow 10 working days for receipt.
Until you receive your replacement permit, you will be unable to park your new vehicle within the ResPark zone.
If you come in to our Customer Centre a new one can be issued to you then and there - so you will not have to wait for a replacement.
If you want to update your permit in person, please ensure that you bring:
- your old permit
- any required documents
- a method of payment (if applicable)
