Business permits

Business permits are intended for employees who use their vehicle on a regular basis for business purposes. They will not be issued to employees who simply want to use their vehicle for commuting. We exercise the right to limit the amount of permits issued to a business. Business permits cost £800 per year.

In applying for the business permit, you are bound by our terms and conditions.

A maximum of 10 permits can be issued per business.

New and renewal applications

If you would like to apply for a new, or renewal, business permit please provide:

  • A fully completed business permit application form.
  • You will also need to send a letter, on company letterhead, briefly outlining what the vehicle will be used for.
  • We will also require a copy of the non-domestic rates bill for the company. 
  • Payment must be in the form of a business cheque made payable to "Ealing Council" only. Post-dated cheques will not be accepted.

You will then need to submit your application by posting it to: Parking services, PO Box 46264, Ealing W5 2UN. 

Postal applications can take up to 10 working days to process from the date the application is received by Parking services.  

Change of vehicle

If you have changed your vehicle you will need to apply for the vehicle details on your permit to be amended. If you do not do this, your vehicle may be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) when parked in a resident bay. A change of vehicle can be processed for any annual permit.

To apply for the change of vehicle you will need to return your current permit to parking services (unless issued electronically). It must be attached to a business permit application form that has been completed with the new vehicles details and a payment of £10. Cheques should be made payable to "Ealing Council"; post dated cheques will not be accepted.

You can submit your application and payment by posting it to: Parking Services, PO Box 46264, Ealing W5 2UN. 

Applications received by post can take up to 10 days to process from the date they are received by Parking services.
