Trade parking permit vouchers

A trade parking permit allows you to park your vehicle in on street parking bays while you work in a parking permit zone.

They do not entitle you to park at a specific address, but they allow you to park in any on street parking space signposted for permit users in any eligible zone.

Where you can use the permit

You can park your vehicle up until midnight in any bay signed for the use of permit holders in the parking zone your permit is valid for. If you want to park it overnight you will need to ensure you also display a permit for the following day.

You must display your permit in the windscreen of your vehicle so that all the details are visible from the outside or you may be fined.
