Tradespeople and contractors permits - Lewes and Falmer

Apply for parking permits online

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 in the permit zones.

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 shared use and permit holder only bays in any parking zone in Lewes or Falmer, with no time limit. They are not valid in any other bay or in any off street car park.

Multiple visits can be made on the date of the permit.

You do not need a permit on a bank or public holiday.

Having a permit does not guarantee you a parking space.

How much do they cost?

They cost £3.50 each and must be paid for online when you apply.
