We have recently carried out a formal review of the annual cost of a NCC pay and display permit and for permits beginning 1 April 2019 onwards the annual cost has increased as below:

  • three-month permit - £64
  • six-month permit - £108
  • 12-month permit - £195
If you run a guest house or a hotel within resident parking scheme areas, you may be enititled to additional permits.

We’ll consider your requirements, taking into account the number of bedrooms and any alternative council-operated off-street parking or private parking nearby.

We have recently carried out a formal review of the annual cost of a resident and visitor permit, which has been the first review for over 10 years.  The administrative cost of producing the permits exceeds the current charge, and further costs are incurred through the management and enforcement of the permit schemes themselves.  Therefore for schemes beginning 1 April 2019, the annual cost of a resident and visitor permit is increasing to £25.00 each.

Complete the Resident Guest House/Hotel Visitors parking permit application form and include proof the premises are being used as a guest house or hotel.

We won’t necessarily be able to provide permits for every guest room. If you have more guests than you have permits, you’ll need to find alternative places for them to park safely and legally.
