If you live in a designated resident parking permit area, you may be entitled to purchase one parking permit and one visitor permit. Please check the permit scheme table towards the bottom of this page for details. 

Resident and visitor permits are priced at £15 each.

This is an administration fee and is payable whether the scheme you are buying it for has one month remaining before renewal or 11 months.

Please refer to the table below for start and expiry dates per scheme.

Important notes

  • Please allow 10 working days for the processing and posting of your permit. If the permit is urgent, please display a note on your vehicle windscreen containing the following information, the ESB reference number supplied at the end of the transaction and the date of application
  • Purchasing a resident's parking permit for the scheme you live in doesn't guarantee you a parking space, nor does it reserve a bay for your use only outside your property

Changing your vehicle

If you change your vehicle or your vehicle registration number you must apply for a replacement permit.

Your first replacement in a 12 month period will be issued free of charge. Additional changes after this will be charged at £15 per change.

Copy all the details from your current permit onto a note and display this in your vehicle.

Add the message "returned for change of registration number" along with the reference number you receive at the end of the application process, and the date you applied.

Please return the old permit to us with a copy of the new keeper slip or bill of sale for your new vehicle if you are unable to attach them to the online form.

A temporary permit will be issued to you and once you have provided a copy of the V5 vehicle registration document containing your name and the permit address a full permit will be issued.

When parked in resident parking spaces, if the vehicle registration on the permit does not match the registration of the vehicle in which it is displayed, the vehicle could receive a penalty charge notice.

Lost/damaged permits

If you have lost your resident permit or visitor permit or it has become damaged you can apply for a replacement. Permits cost £15.

Due to the number of complaints from residents regarding the misuse of visitor permits and allegations of "selling on for profit", only one visitor permit will be replaced for the remaining duration of the scheme.

Your old permit will be flagged as void on our system and any vehicle displaying it will be subject to the issuance of a Penalty Charge Notice.

Application guidance notes

Vehicle types

Vehicle types that can be used with a resident or visitor permit include passenger carrying vehicle, motorcycle, dual purpose or goods vehicle, a caravan or trailer if hooked up to a vehicle displaying a valid permit.

Once you receive your new permit display it immediately in the holder provided, on the left or nearside of the vehicle. All details should be clearly visible from the outside of the vehicle. Any vehicle parked not clearly displaying a valid parking permit is liable to be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice.

If you own or make use of a motorcycle please advise parking services when you apply. The permit will be issued and kept in our despatch office. When patrolling the area, civil enforcement officers will contact dispatch to verify the motorcycle is allowed to park. 

If you have a visitor with a motorcycle, contact telephone: 01253 476395 and advise them of the permit number and house address.

Reminders

Paper reminders are still being sent for now, but we are gradually phasing these out as it cuts down on paper wastage and is more environmentally friendly.

In the future, we will be moving to email only reminders. Please provide your email address with your application.

The onus is on the householder to renew the permit before it expires.

If you have moved out of a resident parking scheme and no longer need your permit you should return the permit to Parking services, PO Box 4, Blackpool FY1 1NA

Change of address

If you have moved to a property within a different resident parking scheme you need to reapply for permits for your new property.

The £15 fee will be payable for each permit.

Courtesy cars

If you have the use of a temporary courtesy car please contact our dispatch office on telephone: 01253 476395 and give details of the courtesy car. Your resident permit must be displayed in the car even though your registration is different.

Additional information

Only those vehicles displaying an up to date resident or visitor permit matching the scheme they are parked in will be deemed as valid. Exceptions include vehicles used for the purpose of furniture removal or in connection with a wedding or funeral in the immediate area.

Please contact parking despatch on 01253 476395 to advise if there will be a furniture removal vehicle or a wedding or funeral taking place.

  • Any misuse of permits (copying, lending or selling) is not permitted and may result in your permit being cancelled
  • The misuse of resident/visitor permit is in contravention of the Fraud Act 2006
  • An offer of any inducement to any genuine permit holder for use of their resident or visitor pass contravenes the Bribery Act 2010
  • The display of a copy of any genuine permit is in contravention of the Fraud Act 2006
  • Any proven contravention of the fraud and bribery acts carries the potential of criminal consequences for both the user of the permit and the resident to whom it belongs
