Am I entitled to a resident permit?

Residents are entitled to buy up to two resident parking permits per property, allowing you to park in the zone where you live, if you are:

  • a permanent resident at an address within the controlled parking zone and
  • the registered keeper of the vehicle

You will need to provide proof of this with your permit application.

Permits are virtual and linked to the vehicle registration number.

Where can I park?

Download a map of Bexhill parking zones C, E, N and W [409.1 KB] [pdf].

The map shows the zone boundary, you can park within the correct zone for your permit in:

  • permit holder only bays
  • shared use (permit holders or time limited bays)
  • shared use (permit holders or pay and display bays)

When parking, the letter on the sign must show the same letter that your permit is valid for. There is no time limit.

Having a permit does not guarantee you a parking space and the permit is not valid in any other bay or off-street car park.

Just moved to Bexhill?

You will need to change the details on the vehicle registration document and provide proof of your new address, for example, a tenancy agreement or letter from your solicitor providing details of the completion of the mortgage.

We can only issue a three-month permit until these changes have been made and you have provided the correct documents.
