- The permit must be displayed on the near side of the windscreen, so that it can be read from the outside of the vehicle.
- A permit does not guarantee a parking space. If no parking spaces are available, this does not justify a parking contravention elsewhere.
- Permits are not valid for use on vehicles with an unladen weight of more than 3.5 tonnes or which exceed six metres in length.
- Permits are only valid for use on the dates shown on the permit.
A parking permit is only valid while displayed in a vehicle which is currently taxed and roadworthy. Therefore, vehicles which are untaxed or registered as “off the road” (SORNed) will be ticketed for not displaying a valid permit.
The use of permits is monitored. Where evidence is found that the permit is being used wrongly, the permit holder will be given the opportunity to provide a satisfactory explanation of the circumstances or agree actions to rectify the situation. Action will be taken by the council if no satisfactory response is received.
Please note: The permit is only valid for use in the residents' car park it is issued for – this will be shown by the letters next to the serial number on the permit and/or confirmation email. Entry signs to the car park and signs near each permit parking bay will identify the housing car park.
