Parking vouchers

Resident

Resident vouchers are allocated to persons residing in a property within the boundaries of a permit parking scheme. They have been introduced to supplement the existing Annual Residents' Visitor Permit where residents are receiving more that one vistor vehicle at a time.

The vouchers are only valid in 'permit holders only' restrictions; they are not valid in a metred parking space, even if it includes an exemption for permit holders.

The scratchcard vouchers are specific to the zone where your property is located.

Each voucher will enable the driver to park for a maximum of 3 hours. If you intend to stay longer than 3 hours then you can display a second voucher to start when the other voucher expires. Vouchers can only be purchased in sheets of 5 scratchcards. Details will be scratched off to show the relevant day, month, date and time of arrival.

A resident may apply to the council for vouchers on condition that they reside in a property that is eligible for a parking permit.

Permits are not required for motorcycles.

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

Please note that failure to provide the necessary documentation or sign the application form to confirm your acceptance of the terms and conditions will delay the processing of your application and the issue of permits
