Resident parking permits
Due to the current measures to control the spread of Coronavirus (Corvid-19), we will not be able to send new Whitecross Residential Parking Zone Permits on 1 April 2020.
Therefore please continue to display your current vehicle permit (Expires 31 March 2020) until notified otherwise.
Thank you for your patience.

Evidence you need to provide
When you apply you’ll need to tell us your name, address and contact details and which zone you’re applying for.
We need details about your car, including the make, model, colour and registration number, and also proof that you own or lease the car, such as:
- a Vehicle Registration Document (V5C) showing your full name and address
- a valid Motor Insurance Certificate and Schedule, showing your full name and address and your Vehicle Registration Mark
- for a company vehicle, we’ll accept a typed letter (on official company letter-headed paper) confirming that you are the sole driver, and showing your full name and address and Vehicle Registration Mark
You’ll need to provide proof that you live at the address, such as a recent:
- utility bill (e.g. electricity, gas, water, landline, council tax)
- formal tenancy agreement
- housing association rent document
- property purchase document
- lease agreement document
- personal bank, building society or credit card statement
If your permit has been stolen, you’ll also need to tell us the police crime number.
If you change your car, move house or lose your permit
Let us know as soon as possible if you change your car, lose your parking permit, or if you move house. Please note that you may need to fully reapply with up to date proof of your address.
If you’re visiting someone who lives in a resident parking zone, you’ll need a valid visitor permit which must be on display at all times. However:
- Bank Quay area - there are 90 minute waiting bays so you may not need a visitor permit unless you’ll be parking there for longer
- Green Street - there are two hour waiting bays so there are no visitor permits available
- Crosfield Street and East View - there are no visitor permits available at all due to capacity
All visitor permits must remain with the property if you move.
If you have a Blue Badge but not a resident parking permit, you aren’t allowed to park in a resident parking zone unless you’re parked in a designated disabled bay. Your Blue Badge must also be correctly displayed.
