Visitor parking

We've introduced a new online parking permit system, and anyone who lives in a Controlled Parking Zone will need to create an account on the system and apply for a ‘Resident Permit' or 'Visitor Parking Sessions’.

The system is very simple to use and replicates the current process, in that you will need to supply evidence that you live in the zone and that the vehicle qualifies for a permit. Once the application and supporting evidence have been submitted, payment will be requested, which must be made via debit or credit card. You will not receive a resident permit or visitor scratch cards to display in the vehicle as this is no longer required.

You do not need to have a residents' parking permit to buy visitor parking sessions.

Allocation

Each household (one property) can:

  • buy visitor parking sessions (the amount you can buy depends on which zone you live in – see table below), and
  • buy up to four one-week visitor permits per year for longer visits.

If you are a senior citizen (over 60 years), you can buy up to double the visitor parking session allocation for the zone you live in and up to eight one-week visitor permits per year.

Prices

Resident visitor parking sessions are:

  • £4 for 25 one-hour parking sessions (£2 for senior citizens and Dacorum Card holders)
  • £3 for 5 five-hour vouchers (£1.50 for senior citizens and Dacorum Card holders)

You can buy resident parking sessions in blocks of 25 hours up to your annual allowance.

Each long-stay (one week) visitor permit costs £3 (half price for senior citizens and Dacorum Card holders). Each permit is only valid for the specified dates. 

Once we have received your application and payment, the visitor parking session will be 'live' on the date and times you have stated, there will be no paper scratch card or permit to display within the vehicle.

Using your existing scratch card vouchers

Existing visitor scratch card vouchers will be valid for use until 12 April 2019 and we advise residents to use these before purchasing additional visitor parking sessions online.

Scratch off a box in every section – day, date, month, time of start of visit, morning/afternoon to use these.

You can display more than one voucher to cover the required parking time. Stagger the start times so that the expiry time of one voucher matches the start time of the next.

If you are parking the vehicle overnight, display vouchers to cover it until the end of the restricted hours, and another voucher starting from the beginning of restricted hours the next day. You can display all the vouchers at the same time.

If your visitor intends to park for longer than the length of your individual ‘Visitor Parking Session’, then you will need to book more than one session to ensure that they are covered. For example, if a visitor is parking for three hours, you will need to book consecutive one-hour sessions to cover this period.
