Resident Parking Permit
The purpose of a Resident Parking Permit (RPP) is to allow you to park your vehicle, which is permanently kept at your address, in the street (this may include work vehicles supplied to you by your employer).
An RPP can only be issued to a person who lives in the street, and relates specifically to a vehicle that they have shown is theirs and they keep there.
RPPs must only be used for the purpose of parking such a vehicle. An RPP indicates the registration number of the vehicle it relates to and can only be used in that vehicle: if placed in another vehicle it is not valid and if parked in the parking permit area (PPA) during controlled hours that vehicle would be liable to receive a Penalty Charge Notice.
An RPP will not be issued to any vehicle with a Maximum Authorised Mass (MAM or “revenue weight”) of more than 3,500 KG or which seats 12 or more passengers.
To apply for an RPP, in order to prevent fraud and ensure only genuine residents are able to obtain a permit, when applying evidence of eligibility will be required as detailed in table below.

Upon receipt of a new application, a virtual dispensation will be issued allowing the vehicle to park in the PPA from the next working day while the application is determined (unless it is obvious immediately upon receipt that the application will be unsuccessful, in which case you will be notified at once and will not be allowed to park). During this period there is no requirement to display a residents parking permit.
