Trade Permit Information

  1. Trade parking permits are now e-permits, there is no need to display a physical permit. A benefit of moving to an e-permit is that you are able to start parking your vehicle straight away. Civil Enforcement Officers will be able to identify which vehicle is covered to park by the vehicle registration number. You need to prove your eligibility before you purchase an e-permit. You will need to upload documents in support of your application

    Trade parking permits are valid in every controlled parking zone (CPZ) in the borough and are available to any business or tradesperson that provides proof that they need to operate in more than one CPZ within the borough. There are some locations where the trade permits are not valid, these are listed in the terms and conditions available at the bottom of the application page. Please ensure that you check these before progressing with your application.

    In order to prove your eligibility for a trade e-permit you must provide a covering letter explaining why the permit is essential and one of the following:

    All supporting documents must clearly state the property address and be dated within the last 3 months.

    • A copy of the contract detailing the duration of the expected works to be carried out

    • Planning permission documents

    • A copy of an Invoice

    Trade e-permits are vehicle specific. You must provide proof of vehicle ownership at the time of your application.

    * Please be aware that if any of the vehicles you choose to use are a diesel, a surcharge will apply.
