Landlord Parking Permits
If you are a landlord who owns and maintains properties within parking permit schemes and need to visit the properties during the hours of enforcement, you have the option of using a visitor permit provided by a tenant or short-term scratch cards to provide exemption from the parking restrictions. These permits are valid for the duration of your visit to the property.
You can now also apply for an annual permit that provides exemption for all permit schemes across the city, so this may be convenient if you are managing and maintaining properties across a number of permit zones. Letting agents can also apply for this permit type.
Are there any changes to permit parking schemes during the lockdown period for COVID 19?
Permit holders should renew their permit in the normal way. As the lockdown restrictions (which commenced on 23 March 2020) have been eased following the Government announcement on Sunday 10 May 2020, an additional 7 weeks are being added to the period of coverage for renewals of Landlord permits. Permits will be renewed for 59 weeks instead of the normal 52 weeks.
This includes permit types that are eligible in permit parking schemes such as resident; visitor; business; charity; landlord and tradesmen. The extension will also apply to city centre resident permit holders.
If you are having any difficulties in renewing your permit or have other queries regarding Landlord permits please email firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our team will be able to assist you.
Landlord Annual Permits cost £300.00, which is payable in one lump sum.

How do I pay for a Landlord Parking Permit?
If you have received an offer for a Landlord parking permit or would like to renew one, payment can be made below.
What do I do if I lose my permit or it is stolen?
We require written notification from the permit holder that the permit has been lost or stolen, together with payment of an administrative charge of £10. Please send your notification to firstname.lastname@example.org quoting “lost permit” in the subject line and including your name, full address and telephone number so that we may contact you to take payment for the administration charge.
Is there a limit to how many annual landlord permits I can apply for?
There is a limit of 2 landlord permits per landlord/letting agent. This ensures that priority is given to residents in areas of high demand for limited parking space and reflects that landlords can also use a visitor permit or scratch card.
What are the Terms and Conditions of use?
Information on using the permit correctly can be found on the reverse of the permit and also on the application form. The permit cannot be used unless the landlord is visiting the property that they own or manage within a permit scheme. Using the permit for other purposes is classed as misuse and can result in the issue of Penalty Charge Notices and the revocation of the permit.
What happens if I need to surrender the permit before expiry?
If the permit is returned to Newcastle Parking Services within 14 days of issue, a full refund will be processed.
