Parking permits for businesses

You can apply for a business parking permit if:

  • there is no space to park within the boundary of your premises
  • you have one or more operational vehicles registered to the business, and
  • you are registered for business rates.

Each business in a controlled parking zone can buy one permit.

  • You can have up to two registration numbers on the permit, but both vehicles must be operational vehicles.
  • An operational vehicle is one that is used for collections and deliveries. A vehicle must be less than 5.25 metres long and no more than 2.3 metres high. If a vehicle is only used to get to and from work, it does not count as an operational vehicle.
  • Only one vehicle can use the permit at a time and you can only use the parking permit in the controlled parking zone that it was issued for.
  • You must clearly display the permit in your vehicle.


  • £300 per permit, per year.

Replacements and refunds

If you change your vehicle, you will also need to change your permit.

If you leave the area, sell or scrap your vehicle before your permit has expired, you can get a partial refund on it. You must return the old permit.
