Apply for a new resident parking permit

You must be able to prove that you live within an Ealing Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) before you can be issued with a resident's permit. Please note not all residents that live within a CPZ are entitled to a permit, some properties in Ealing fall within a Low Car Housing Schemes (LCHS).

Low car housing

Some properties fall within a ‘low car housing scheme’ development, as defined by the council's planning policy. Typically, a property is part of a low car housing scheme when, either there is insufficient off-street or on-street parking provision to accommodate all of the units within the development.

If there is no option to apply for a permit or vouchers once you have registered, this is likely to mean your property falls within a low car housing development and you are not entitled to a permit or paper vouchers. You may still register for visitor park by phone with our cashless provider in order to get virtual parking sessions for your visitors..

Before you apply

Permits are issued electronically, so you do not need to display a paper copy in your vehicle.

You must apply online unless you have a valid blue badge or wish to pay by direct debit. Blue badge holders are issued permits at no cost.

For residents who do not have access to online facilities, we offer terminals at our customer service centre where help is available when applying for a permit.

The cost of a permit will depend upon the type of fuel used by your vehicle, your vehicle’s CO2 emissions, the hours of restriction in your parking zone and the number of vehicles in your household.

When you have applied and paid for your permit you will be able to park in your CPZ from the start date of your permit.

Please check your vehicle registration closely during the application process. If you enter incorrect details you may be liable for a penalty charge notice (PCN).
