About the green permit

You will be issued with a permit showing the vehicle registration number and a cardboard clock.

Permits will not be issued for any period less than 12 months. When parking, both the permit and the clock (set to the arrival time) will need to be clearly displayed in the vehicle windscreen.

If you don't comply with the conditions of the scheme you may receive a parking fine.


Time limits

With your green permit you can only stay for 2 hours on street, with some exceptions.

Car parks tend not to have special time limits for green permits, but there are some where you can only stay for 6 hours.

Remember to set your green permit clock at the time of arrival. See details below.
