Residents' priority parking scheme
The residents' priority parking scheme (ResPark) restricts parking in some areas of York, known as ResPark zones.
All ResPark zones are marked with signs detailing the local restrictions, which can vary between zones.
Parking within ResPark zones is limited to those who are resident within the zone, or have a business connection to a property within the zone.
Permits available to residents who live within a ResPark zone include:
- household and additional vehicle parking permits
- visitor parking permits and authorisation cards
- house in multiple occupancy (HMO) parking permits
- special control parking permits
Business-related ResPark permits include:
- guest house permits
- property parking permits (builders' permits)
- landlords and management agents parking permits
- business parking permits
- commercial parking permits
- community parking permits

However, other parking solutions are available to those excluded from the ResPark scheme:
Residents of the Badger Hill area in York are eligible for a special on-street parking permit. This permit is separate to the overall ResPark scheme:
