Am I entitled to a resident permit?

Residents are entitled 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.

Find out which documents we will accept - resident permit proof of eligibility.

Permits are virtual and linked to the vehicle registration number.

You can park in resident permit holder bays within the correct zone for your permit. In shared zones permit holders can also park in shared use bays. There is no time limit.

Having a permit does not guarantee you a parking space.

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

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 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.
