Resident parking permits

Changes to Residents' car parking permits

Residents’ car parking permit fees are changing on 1 April 2020. Permits will cost £30 and will be valid for two years. The new permit will allow residents to park for up to three hours on any long stay car parks, an increase on the current two hour limit.

If your permit was purchased before April 2018 then you are required to purchase a new permit at £30.00.

Existing permits purchased between 1 April 2018 and 31 March 2020 will be valid for the first two years of the new scheme. Permits bought before 1 April 2018 will need to be renewed before 1 April 2020.

The designated car parks for the residents parking permit are as follows:

If parking on any other pay and display car parks a valid pay and display ticket must be purchased and displayed on the vehicle.

How it works

The permit consists of an adjustable clock face which is used to show the time of arrival on the car park, and includes the registration mark of the vehicle. The permit can only be used in the vehicle displaying the same registration mark as on the permit, and as recorded on Wyre Council's database.

The permit must be displayed in the car so that the clock face and registration mark are clearly visible from outside.

When parking on one of the designated car parks, the driver should set the clock to show the correct time of arrival. The permit will then be valid for up a maximum of three hours from the time of arrival. Please note the clock must show the time of arrival. The permit can only be used once per day; you cannot move from car park to car park.

If you want to stay longer you must purchase a car park ticket and display the ticket in the vehicle. You cannot purchase a ticket on arrival and then use the clock as well, as the permit is only valid for a maximum of three hours from the time of arrival. Displaying the clock and a parking ticket will mean that only the parking ticket is considered when checking the length of stay of the vehicle.

Failure to use the permit correctly may result in the issue of a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN)

Terms and conditions

The permit is available to all permanent residents of Wyre. Ownership of the permit remains with the person registered with Wyre Council and is non-transferable. 

Vehicles must be parked according to the rules and regulations of the car park. By issuing a parking permit the council does not guarantee availability of a parking space. Drivers should be aware that during busy periods, demand for spaces might exceed availability.

If your permit is damaged or no longer legible please return it to Wyre Council and purchase a new one.
