Parking permits

In August 2018 Stevenage Borough Council implemented its first parking permit scheme in Burymead (Zone B). This scheme was introduced to help relieve high levels of parking demand in the street while still allowing residents and their visitors to park.

If you're a resident you can now apply for and manage your parking permit/visitor vouchers online

The parking permit scheme only allows vehicles displaying the a valid parking permit or visitor voucher to park in a designated bay or zone.

Apply for a Burymead (Zone B) parking permit

Please read the terms and conditions before applying for a permit.

You can apply for parking permits and visitor vouchers, provide supporting documents and make secure payments using the online parking permit system. In order to do this, you will need to set up an account in the online parking permit system.

Once you have uploaded the supporting documents and paid for your resident parking permit a dispensation will automatically be given to your vehicle to cover the time required for us to process your application and post the paper permit to you.

Existing permits you already have (issued following a paper form application) won't appear on this system, so the process for renewing them will be the same as applying for a new permit. We'll send you a reminder when it is time to do this. Once a permit is on the system it will be easy for you to renew and manage online (for example if you change your vehicle).

How can I renew my permit?

When renewing your permit, you will need to submit up to date copies of the same information as required upon first application. This ensures that there is a robust audit trail and that permits are only issued to individuals, and for vehicles, that are eligible. Renewal reminders will be issued two to four weeks before permits expire.

What if I lose my permit?

If your permit is lost, stolen, damaged, undelivered or you require a replacement permit for other reasons you must apply using a new application form and select  "To replace a lost/damaged permit". This application will be subject to a £10 administrative fee.

Can I get a refund if I no longer need my permit?

If you no longer need a parking permit, we can refund any remaining complete months from the date it is received by us until the permit expires, subject to a £10 administration fee. Refunds will not be issued for returned visitor vouchers or caring visitor parking permits.
