Please see what roads are in the scheme (PDF document [227.08Kb]) to ensure that you are eligible for a residents permit before continuing with an application.

Yellow lines

  • Waiting restrictions and double yellow lines are marked in all roads within the Residents Parking Zones. Double yellow lines are restricted at all times and do not require a timeplate.

Parking places

  • Parking places will be marked where residents or their visitors need to park (School Hill only). Between 10am and 2pm (Monday to Saturday) in Quality Street and Old Mill Lane and between 8am and 6pm (Monday to Sunday) in School Hill, vehicles parked in Quality Street, Old Mill Lane or the marked bays in School Hill will need to display a valid parking permit otherwise the vehicle may be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).
  • Outside these times vehicle can park in the roads and/or parking bays without a permit.

Parking permits

  • To cover administration costs resident permits will cost £50 for the first permit and £75 per permit thereafter.
  • If you have no off street parking at your property you will be entitled to two resident permits.
  • If you have one off street parking space you will be entitled to one resident permit.
  • A shared drive does not count as a parking space as it is also a means of access. A parking permit can only be used by one vehicle and has the registration number of that vehicle marked on it.
