To be eligible, your address needs to be in a parking zone and your vehicle registered to that address.
Find find out if your address is within a parking zone and if the parking zone's operational hours are relevant to the time you wish to be parked in the zone. Use the online application to assist you in finding your postcode to find out if your address is within a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ).
The holder is allowed to park their vehicle (car, invalid carriage, or goods vehicle) in permit holder and shared use bays in the permit zone during operational hours. Permits are non-transferable, so if there are several vehicles in your household, apply for a shared permit.
Please note only the vehicle quoted on the permit will be able to park without restriction within the CPZ at any one time.

Business owners can buy permits for vehicles essential for running their business eg delivery vehicles. They are not issued to get staff to and from work.
