Resident contract permit

Resident contract permit terms and conditions

  1. A resident contract permit may only be issued if your main residence is within the City Walls and you do not have a garage or any off-street parking for a vehicle at your address.
  2. The permit is valid Monday to Sunday inclusive until the date displayed on the permit.
  3. The permit is valid only whilst parked in the specified council car park.
  4. The vehicle must be parked in a marked bay within the car park.
  5. The permit does not guarantee a parking space.
  6. The council reserves the right to vary either permanently or temporarily close the car park that the resident contract permit is valid for.
  7. The permit is only to be used for residential purposes. It cannot be used in conjunction with any business activities relating to the registered address or otherwise.
  8. A resident contract permit may be surrendered at any time via your Permit Portal account. A refund will be given to the value of any full unexpired months of the resident contract permit.
  9. The council will not accept any liability whatsoever in respect of the theft, loss or damage to any vehicle or its contents in the council’s car parks. Nor will it accept any such liability in respect of delay caused by the malfunction of any automatic barrier or other equipment.
  10. If your vehicle is stolen, then a replacement permit will be issued on production of a crime reference number from the Police to confirm the theft of your vehicle. If your vehicle is written off then a replacement permit will be issued on receipt of confirmation of the write-off from the police or the DVLA.
  11. A penalty charge notice may be issued and/or the resident contract permit withdrawn if any of these terms and conditions are not complied with.
  12. Please be aware that you are not able to park in the specified car park until you have received confirmation that your permit has been approved and you have been issued with a permit number. A Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) will be issued to any vehicles parked without a valid permit. A permit application is not a permit and does not provide you with any exemptions from the parking regulations in place. A permit application will not be considered as a mitigating factor in any appeals received against the issue of a PCN.
  13. City of York Council reserves the right to withdraw any permit found to have been improperly issued or used. If your permit is withdrawn or you are refused a permit, you have a right to appeal.
  14. This is a formal contract and sets out the rules and obligations that you must follow in order to use the permit. You will need to read all the terms and conditions before accepting the agreement. A penalty charge notice may be issued and/or the permit withdrawn if any of the terms and conditions are not complied with.
  15. The permit must only be used by the permit holder.
  16. The permit will no longer be valid if you no longer reside at the address.
  17. The permit may be withdrawn if you misuse it.
  18. You must not sell or transfer the permit.
  19. It is an offence for a person knowingly to make a false statement for the purpose of obtaining a parking permit. The council will not hesitate to prosecute, and a conviction will result in substantial penalties. The council is under a duty to protect the public funds it administers and to this end may use the information you have provided for the prevention and detection of fraud. It may also share this information with other bodies responsible for auditing or administering public funds for these purposes.
