Resident permits are issued to assist residents to park their vehicles, within the PHP zones situated within the Town Centre and Sterte areas.
You can register more than one vehicle on your online account and then nominate which vehicle you need to park, as and when required. It is important to ensure the vehicle you have parked is the vehicle active on your account.
A resident parking permit is currently £20 per year.
Documentary evidence is required with your first application using the online permit system.
Proof of residence
A check will be made of the Council Tax and Electoral Roll records to verify residence. However, if you are not named on these records, you will need to provide either:
current tenancy agreement, or
recent bank statement less than 3 months old
Proof of vehicle ownership
- registration document V5 - pages 1 & 2 (the vehicle must be registered to the property and applicant)
- schedule of insurance, showing name and address (only if vehicle is new to you or you have just moved to the area)
- company vehicles - (a letter is required from the company to confirm the resident is the keeper of the vehicle, as well as registration document or lease agreement)
If you are unable to provide the required documentary evidence or are unsure about what to supply please contact the Parking Administration Section on 01202 634240.
