Having a permit does not guarantee you a parking space.

Resident permits are not valid in any off street car park.

Charges for resident permits

Permits cost £25 and are valid for one year.

Once you have received confirmation that your permit has been approved you can pay online or alternatively by cash, cheque (payable to ‘ESCC’) or credit or debit card at one of these libraries:

Your permit will be posted to you once payment is received. It will show your vehicle registration number and cannot be transferred.

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

Just moved to Rye Citadel?

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.
