A green parking permit is for low-emission vehicles such as electric, gas and dual-fuelled vehicles (e.g. electric hybrids). It does not include biodiesel-enabled vehicles.
A green permit allows you to park in our car parks or on-street parking, subject to time limits (details below).
The scheme is for anyone with an eligible vehicle, irrespective of home address.
You are allowed one application per person per household.
When buying a green paperless parking permit, please allow 36 hours between purchasing it and parking in a permit zone. This is to make sure your paperless permit has been activated and the necessary records have been updated before you use it for the first time.
The green permit can only be used in our car parks (map below) or in on-street parking spaces. This is subject to time limits - see below.
It cannot be used in car parks we don't run or in other parking permit zones like Broomhill and Hillsborough.

When you apply for a green permit, we will send you a cardboard clock. You must use this clock to show what time your parking started. You must clearly display it in your windscreen.
If you don't comply with the conditions of the scheme you may receive a parking fine.
