You can apply for a special control parking permit if you live in a house or flat in the residents' priority parking scheme (ResPark) special control zones within:
- the Micklegate area
- the North Street area
- Agar Street
The special control parking permit will allow you (or a vehicle owner visiting your property) to park in certain resident bays in the area.
Return your application with the correct payment and proof of your address.
This is due to the restricted availability of on-street parking within the special control zones.
If you're unsure whether you're entitled to a special control permit or you need more information, please contact our parking services team before completing your application form.
Cost of special control parking permits
You can have a permit for 3, 6, 9 or 12 months. The cost of your permit depends on how long you want the permit for.
There are also 3 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 will be charged the standard rate if the emissions are 121g to 185g/Km2 (vehicle tax bands D to I).
You will be charged the premium rate for your household permit if the emissions are over 185g/Km2 (vehicle tax bands J to M) or your vehicle is longer than 5m.
You can find vehicle tax information on a new or used car online from the Vehicle Certification Agency.

Temporary special control parking permits
When you move into a new property, you may not have the relevant proof of address to apply for a parking permit.
You can get a temporary permit in order to park in the special control zone for a period up to 3 months.
Once you have obtained the necessary proof of address, you will need to forward it to the Parking Office to confirm that you reside at the property.
Once the documents have been received, a resident permit will be issued to you so that you can continue to park in your residents' parking area.
You are still able to benefit from the savings achieved by paying for a 6, 9 or 12 month permit. However, if you pay for more than 3 months your temporary permit will still only be valid for the initial 3 month period. On receipt of your proof of address, we will then issue a valid permit up until the date which was covered by your initial payment.
