Healthcare workers and carers permits - Lewes and Falmer

Who can use a healthcare and carer permit?

Permits can be used by doctors, nurses, midwives, health visitors, social workers, and carers who provide services to clients in their homes in the controlled parking zone.

Your organisation will need to apply for the permits in advance and distribute to staff as required. The application will need to be submitted on a letter with headed paper showing the number of permits you are applying for.

We will not accept applications from individual members of staff.

The permits are scratch cards, which you will need to validate to show the date of use and the vehicle registration. Full instructions are shown on the permits.

Where can I park with a healthcare and carer permit?

You can park in any parking zone in Lewes or Falmer in: 

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

The permit is valid on the date that it is scratched off only. You do not need a permit on a bank or public holiday. Multiple visits can be made with one permit on any one day.

Having a permit does not guarantee a parking space and they are not valid in any other bay or in any off street car park.

The use of healthcare worker and carer permits will be regularly monitored to make sure parking reflects compliance with these terms. Misuse may result in permits being withdrawn or further applications being rejected. 

Permits must be clearly displayed so that all the details can be read by a civil enforcement officer.

How much do they cost?

They cost £1.30 each and can be bought individually or in books of ten.

Permits are not transferable, exchangeable or refundable.

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:

If you want to collect the permits from a different library than Lewes, please tell us when you make your application.
