Tradesman's parking permits

The annual tradesman’s parking permit is designed to help small businesses who are often required to park in:

  • Residential parking areas
  • Pay and display zones
  • Limited waiting bays

Permits available

There are 2 types of permits available:

  • Agencies permit - for use by commercial and non-commercial persons/organisations who work on a ‘planned/appointment’ basis, not on emergency response
  • Business permit - for use by commercial and non-commercial persons/organisations who work on a ‘planned/appointment’ basis, not on emergency response

Parking in these areas will be allowed on display of the permit providing drivers can show they are doing their job.

The offer is available to tradesmen who work on a planned/appointment basis and the permit will only allow parking for a maximum of 3 hours (no return within 3 hours) and be applicable between Monday and Friday 7.00am to 7.00pm.

The permit is available at a cost of £100 per year.
