Temporary Tradesman Parking Permits

Temporary Tradesman Parking Permits

The temporary 3 month permit has been introduced to allow persons working on longer term projects at a property, land or on the highway within the boundaries of a permit parking scheme to park with an exemption from the permit parking scheme restrictions.


3 month tradesman permits cost £20.00 each, payable in one lump sum.

How to apply

Applications for permits or scratchcards will need to be submitted online or by post.  Please allow 14 days for your application to be processed.

Provide evidence that you are working at a property within the scheme such as contract for the work, an estimate or quotation, invoice or planning permission. The documentation should be on letterhead paper from the tradesman. If work is being carried out on the road or an area of land next to the road but not within an inhabited property then documentation confirming the work has been commissioned should be supplied.

You can apply for a maximum of 3 temporary works permit at any one time. Permits may be renewed pending on further information supplied confirming that work is ongoing in the area.

Information regarding how your personal data may be collected, processed, shared and retained following your application for a permit can be found here.
