Parking restrictions lifted for city centre resident permit holders

If you live on city centre streets where on-street pay and display is in operation, you can now park in pay and display bays without penalty at any time until 2nd December 2020, as long as you display your residents parking permit. However, you must not park in other restricted areas such as on yellow lines, or in disabled and loading bays. All other customers must pay for council car parks and pay and display parking.

Delays in processing permit applications

We have a large backlog of parking permit applications. If you have already applied to renew your permit and it expired in March 2020 or after, please continue to use it until you get your replacement. New applications will be processed as soon as possible.
