Parking permit types

Resident

A resident may apply to the Council for a parking permit on condition that:

  • The applicant resides at a dwelling eligible for a parking permit i.e. there is an existing permit parking scheme to the front of the property (If you do not regularly live at the premises you do not qualify for a permit irrespective of your interest in the property); and
  • The applicant is the registered keeper of the vehicle and the vehicle is registered at the address named on the application form (these permits will have a vehicle registration number on them so will be specific to the vehicle listed on the application form and the permit parking zone that you live); or
  • The applicant can provide written confirmation from their employer that they regularly use vehicles belonging to the company that they are employed with (these permits will not have a vehicle registration number on them so will be transferrable between vehicles but will be specific to the permit parking zone that you live).

Permits are not required for motorcycles.

We cannot process application forms immediately. If you are a new resident or are changing your vehicle, to avoid the issue of a penalty charge notice, you should contact the Parking Control team on telephone number (0191) 6432121 to obtain a temporary code which is valid for a maximum of 14 days whilst your application form is being processed. The temporary code will be specific to a vehicle named on the application.

Please note that failure to provide the necessary documentation or signing the application form to confirm your acceptance of the Terms and Conditions will delay the processing of your application and the issue of your permit.

Business

If your business is based at premises within a permit parking zone, you can apply for a business-parking permit for that zone to aid the loading/unloading of goods to and from the business. The permit does not have a vehicle registration number printed on it so can be used by any vehicle involved in the loading/unloading activity. The permit is for these operational vehicles only and is not for use as a general parking permit for use by staff working at the business. Businesses should always encourage staff to park away from the main shopping areas to ensure a maximum of kerb space is available for potential shoppers and local residents.

Permits are not required for motorcycles.

We cannot process application forms immediately. Allow 14 days for your application to be processed.
