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.

To qualify for an environmental discount you must show proof with your application. Without proof you will be charged the standard or petrol and diesel rate and will not be able to cancel the permit and reapply at a different rate unless your engine has been modified and you have the certificate to show these changes.

Payment can be made online when your application is approved. Or once you have received confirmation that your application has been approved you can pay at one of these libraries:

There is a £5 administration fee for processing refunds, which will be deducted from the refund amount. We can only refund full remaining months.

Just moved to Hastings?

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.
