Apply for a resident parking permit

You must live at an eligible address within a controlled parking zone (CPZ) in the borough to apply for a resident parking permit.

You cannot apply if you own a property in a CPZ but do not live there. 

Not all addresses in a CPZ are entitled to a permit.

A permit does not guarantee a parking space will be available.

How much it costs

In most of the borough, your permit price is based on: 

  • hours of restriction in your parking zone
  • carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of your vehicle
  • vehicle fuel type
  • number of vehicles in your household with a resident parking permit

You do not need to pay for a resident permit if you have a blue badge.

Before you start

Do not complete this form if you are a blue badge holder. You will need to apply by post instead. 

You can apply and pay for a resident parking permit online.

You will be taken to our online parking system, where you will need to register or log in to your parking account.

You must be able to prove that you live within a CPZ, before you can get a resident parking permit.

Some homes within a CPZ fall within the low-car housing scheme (LCHS). This means residents do not have the right to get a permit.  

There is no limit to the number of permits registered at the same address. But the amount you pay increases with the number of vehicles in a household. Each owner or keeper must have their own parking account.

Be sure to select the correct address.

If you are unable to find your address, do not select one that is close by. This may result in your permit application being rejected. Scroll through all the options in our dropdown list. If you live in a zone and your property is not part of the LCHS and cannot find your address, let us know by emailing or phoning 020 8825 6677 (option 5 then 3). 

Read the terms and conditions for resident parking permits. 

You will need

  • Registration number, colour, make and model of vehicle
  • Vehicle registration document (V5C), sometimes called a log book
  • Proof of address, dated within the last 3 months
  • Credit or debit card

What happens next

We will send you an email once you have applied and paid for your permit.

You will be able to park in your controlled parking zone from the start date of your permit. 

Make a note of your new permit expiry date, to make sure you renew on time.

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

This form should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
