Coronavirus (COVID-19): change to service
Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have made changes to parking restrictions in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.
All current valid permits and season tickets will be extended by one month. We will review this after three weeks.
See further information about changes to services.
Residents are entitled to purchase visitor permits to allow their visitors to park in some restricted areas.
You can purchase, book and top up your daily visitor sessions using the online permit system. Once you have obtained the annual resident visitor voucher permit, you can then book your visitors parking online. The booking will upload automatically to the civil enforcement officers handheld computers and you will no longer need to display paper scratch cards.
Each property is entitled to a specific number of permits each year. There is an allocation of 50 days worth of visitor permits per year available to each property, with the exception of:
- The Old Town
- Cinnamon Lane
- Seldown Road/Lane
- Seldown Homezone
These areas have an annual allocation of 100 days of visitor permits as the restrictions in these areas cover a longer period of time.
Documentary evidence is required. You will need to produce:
- Council Tax bill (authorisation to check Council Tax records is on application form)
- tenancy agreement
Visitor permits are issued in books of 5. Each book costs £11. Proof of residency is also required each time you purchase the daily visitor permits.
