Resident visitor permits


These permits are for residents to give to their visitors

How many resident visitor permits can I buy?

  • 100 permits per year per household
  • 150 permits per year if you are housebound – you will have to provide proof, such as a letter from your doctor.

You should buy visitor permits in advance although you do not need to buy all the permits in one go and can apply for more at any time.

Even if you do not have a resident parking permit, you can still buy day permits for your visitors. They are scratch card permits, which you will need to validate to show the date of use and the vehicle registration. Full instructions are shown on the permits.

Where do I get the permits from?

You must apply for visitor permits online first. After your application has been approved you can collect the permits from the libraries listed below. If you do not pay for the permits online, you will need to pay at the library when you collect them.

Permits can be collected from the library in the town that you live in. If you want to collect the permits from a different library, please tell us when you make your application.
