Tradespeople and contractors permits - Lewes and Falmer
Who can use a trade permit?
Tradespeople and contractors, for example plumbers and electricians, working in the controlled parking zone can buy day permits.
Permits are virtual and linked to the vehicle registration number.
You should only use a trade permit if you are:
- working on a property, which is not your permanent place of work and
- only using it for business use, not personal use.
You will need to provide proof of where you are working and how long the work will take, this could be an invoice or quote. Contact the customer service team if you need advice about what documents we accept.
Where can I park?
Trade permits allow you to 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)
Multiple visits can be made on the date of the permit. You do not need a permit on a bank or public holiday.
They are not valid in any other bay or in any off street car park and having a permit does not guarantee you a parking space.
How much do they cost?
They cost £4.50 each and must be paid for online when you apply.
