Supplementary Parking Scratchcards for Businesses

Supplementary Parking Scratchcards for Businesses

Scratchcards have been introduced to support additional business and community requirements and supplement the existing business permits.

A business may apply to the Council for up to 3 books of 10 scratchcards on condition that the property the business is based at is an eligible property within a permit parking zone and that the motorist who will be using the scratchcard is visiting that premises.

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

What coverage does a Business scratchcard provide?

This type of scratchcard provides coverage for a whole day up until midnight of the date indicated on the scratchcard.


  • £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

Please note that as scratch cards are not transferrable any unused scratch cards cannot be returned for refund, so this should be considered for the quantity of scratchcards requested.


There are no discounts applicable for scratchcards.
