Temporary permit for builders or contractors

Temporary permits, sometimes called dispensations, allow builders or trades people to park nearby, when carrying out work at a property that is within a controlled parking zone (CPZ). 

Before you start

Complete this form if you are:

  • A resident who lives in a CPZ
  • Builder or contractor who is working within a CPZ.

The cost of a temporary permit is £15 per day, with a maximum of two weeks. If you need a permit for more time, please apply for a business traders permit

If you want a temporary permit for one day only, you can apply using PayByPhone

You will need

  • Date you want the permit to start from
  • Registration number, colour, make and model of vehicle
  • Credit or debit card.

What happens next

You will get confirmation of your new permit reference number in My Account, within 10 working days. You can find this by going into ‘My transactions’ and then ‘Parking and travel’. 

Permits are virtual (paperless), so you do not need to display anything in your vehicle.

You will be able to park in the controlled parking zone from the start date of your permit once it has been confirmed in My Account. 

This form should take approximately four minutes to complete.
