Types of permits

You can apply for a restricted or unrestricted permit. Details of the car parks included on each permit are detailed below.

The unrestricted option offers our premium rate car parks and the restricted option excludes the premium rate car parks.

There is the option to pay for annual permits by Direct Debit.

Payments are taken monthly, and your permit will be automatically renewed each year.

There will be a small administration fee of £4 for this service which will be included in the monthly payments.

  • Annual un-restricted cost £72 per month
  • Annual restricted cost  £47 per month

If this is something you wish to take advantage of, please contact and request the application documents.

Please be aware, if your direct debit is returned from the bank on two consecutive occasions, the permit will be cancelled and the direct debit option will no longer be available.

Direct Debit payment option is not available for Monthly Bonny Street permits. 

Monthly permits are available for Bonny Street only.

Change of vehicle registration

Copy all the detail from your current permit onto a note to display in your vehicle. Add the message "returned for change of registration number", and include the date you applied.

Return your permit with a covering letter detailing the new registration number. Also, send an email to advising of the change. A new permit will be posted to you.
