How many resident visitor permits can I buy?

  • 100 permits per year per household

Permits are available for residents to buy in either two or five hour periods. 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 permits for your visitors. They are scratch card permits, which you will need to validate to show the date and time of use and the vehicle registration. Full instructions are shown on the permits.
