Resident visitor permits - Lewes and Falmer

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 visitor permits. 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 can my visitors park?

Your visitors can park within the correct zone for the 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 the permit is valid for. 

If you live in zone HS your visitor permits are valid for one other zone in Lewes, which is shown on the map above.

The permit is valid on the date that is scratched off and up to 10am the next day. You do not need a permit on bank or public holidays.

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

How much does each permit cost?

  • Standard resident visitor permit – £1.30
  • If you are housebound – 65p

They can be bought 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 on collection. 

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.
