Supplementary Scratchcard - Landlords

Scratchcards have been introduced to meet residents' needs and support additional business and community requirements and supplement the existing resident and visitor permits.

Landlord scratchcards are allocated to those persons owning but not residing in a property within the boundaries of a permit parking scheme.  They have been introduced so that landlords can visit their premises to carry out necessary repairs and safety checks.

Details will be scratched off to show the relevant date and the zone and vehicle registration number are displayed.

How long do landlord scratchcards run for?

Books of scratchcards can be purchased for a full day.


  • £20 for the first book of 10 full day permits
  • £40 for the second book of 10 full day permits
  • £80 for the third book of 10 full day permits


There are no discounts applicable for scratchcards.

How many scratchcards can I apply for?
