Permit only parking bays
Permit parking bays are bays you can apply to have outside your house and only those with a permit can park there.
They're usually around 6.6 metres long and 3.6 metres wide. We mark the bay in white lines and place a sign next to the bay which says 'Permit holders only'.
If you apply for a permit only parking bay, you'll have a private parking space. We'll give you one permit and only a car displaying the permit will be able to park in the bay.
How to apply
To apply for a permit parking bay:
- Have your Blue Badge number and your vehicle registration document number ready.
- Ring us using the details on this page.
- An engineer will then visit the area where you'd like your parking bay to go. They'll decide if it's safe to install the bay.
- We'll contact you to let you know our decision. If it's safe, you'll have to pay £150 for us to install the bay and provide you with a permit which lasts one year. You'll need to pay £150 every year to renew your permit.
- Once you've paid, we'll install the bay within 12-18 months.
