Part time worker parking permit

Coronavirus (COVID-19): change to service

Poole's public car parks are now open.

See further information about changes to services.

You can purchase, book and top up your part time worker parking sessions using the online permit system. Once you have obtained the part time worker voucher permit, you can then book your parking sessions online. 

The booking will upload automatically to the civil enforcement officers handheld computers and you will no longer need to display paper scratch cards.

The permit is aimed at part time workers who work either up to 5 hours a day or a certain number of days per week.

Part time worker permits are valid for use in the following Town Centre car parks:

  • Swimming Pool car park
  • Parkstone Road on street pay and display area
  • Serpentine Road on street pay and display area

A book of 5 permits costs £18. Each permit allows 5 hours parking, however, if 2 permits are validated for the same day, vehicles can be left for 10 hours.
