We've introduced resident-only parking in some areas of the city where residents and businesses have faced problems with on-street parking.
In these areas permits are available for residents, their visitors, businesses and their customers. And our Civil Enforcement Officers carry out regular enforcement. Income from the sale of resident permits enables us to fund effective enforcement.
If you park in a Resident/Permit Holders parking area or zone without a valid permit, you risk receiving a penalty charge notice.
Find resident-only parking zones and the location of parking bays/zone on our Street parking - zones page.
If you live in a resident-only parking zone you can buy an annual permit for £25 for your address. An extra permit at that household costs £50.
You can also buy daily scratch cards to give to your visitors: these cost 20p each and are only issued in sheets of 4 at 80p per sheet, you can buy up to 10 sheets (40 permits) at a time. To validate the permit users must scratch off the day, date and month.
Find out how to apply for your permit and visitor permits. If you are already registered you can buy additional visitor permits by calling Streetpride on 0333 2006981. Or you can pay for your visitor permits online. Select Parking Season Tickets, from the drop down menu, scroll down the page until you get to On street Visitor Permits - Residents 1 sheet, enter how many sheets you require, complete your details and click on Add To Basket then follow the instructions.
There is an annual permit charge of £100. Business permits are for vehicles required for operational use in the business. We will need proof that a business is operating from the declared address on the specific street and for a reason why the vehicle is essential for the business.
Registered charities may buy permits at half price.
Businesses may buy visitor permits for 40p each. To validate the permit, users must scratch off the day, date and month.

Each case will be considered on an individual basis. Business annual or visitor permits can be bought where they are genuinely needed to access property. We will need proof of property ownership.
If you believe someone is abusing their permit, contact us so that action can be taken. Your details will be kept confidential.
If you have a problem with non-residents parking in your area and you want to explore resident-only parking, contact your Neighbourhood Manager to find what’s involved. Visit our Neighbourhood's page to find details for your Neighbourhood Manager.
Residents who have a carer that visits on a regular basis may apply for an annual permit for the carer. The cost is £25 a year.
