Parking Permits LogoIf you are a frequent user of the city centre car parks in Newcastle upon Tyne then you may be interested in our range of 'City Park' permits.  A City Park permit does away with the need to carry or find change for your parking session and also includes a discount built in to the price.

All of our permits can be taken out for 3, 6 or 12 months at a time and each permit can have up to two vehicle registrations printed on it for added security.

We currently offer four different types of permit - Silver, Gold, Gold+ and Platinum.

City Park Permits

Type Allocated Spaces Times Discount
Silver No Variable Yes
Gold Yes Monday to Friday - 8am to 6pm Yes
Gold + Yes Monday to Saturday - 8am to 10pm Yes
Platinum Yes All days, all times Yes

There is a fixed price for the Gold, Gold+ and Platinum permits (pdf, 14kb) which depends on the car park that you choose. 

The price of a Silver permit is based on the tariff within your selected car park with a discount applied.

Amount of Discount

Length of Permit Discount
13 weeks (a quarter) 15%
26 weeks (6 months) 20%
52 weeks (a year) 25%

Silver permit applications must be for 5 or more hours per day and a minimum of 3 days a week. The times you want to park must be the same each day. Your permit can be valid on any days you choose (for example, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 9.30am - 4.30pm). There are no allocated bays for Silver permit holders, but the permit allows you to park in any normal bay at the times you choose. Please note that the Silver permit is not valid for Gold, Gold Plus or Platinum permit bays and is not transferrable to another car park if all the available pay and display bays are taken. If you are likely to be parking in a car park at a time of high occupancy, please contact Newcastle Parking Services on 0191 277 2728 to discuss your options.

An estimate of the cost of a silver parking permit can be obtained by using the online calculator. An exact price for the silver permit will be subsequently calculated by the parking permit department when an application for a parking permit is submitted and any recent changes in tariffs or fixed daily charges will be taken into account.

Apply for your permit using our online application form or request an application form on 0191 277 2728. Due to an increase in demand for City Park permits recently, please be advised that any application submitted to Newcastle Parking Services may take up to 14 days for an offer to be issued. This will therefore affect any date you wish the permit to commence.
