Resident Parking Permits

East Herts Council manage a number of resident permit parking schemes within certain areas of the district to ensure local residents have the opportunity to park within close proximity to their household. A residents permit will be valid for 12 months and after this time, we will email you to see if you would like to renew your permit which is the same as the price as new application.

You will need to provide documentary evidence proving that the vehicle is registered at the address as well as proof of residence.

Residents will have the opportunity to purchase up to two permits per household and this is strictly for the vehicle(s) detailed in the application.  A permit will cost £41.  The second permit will cost £82.  Motorcycles receive a discounted rate of £19.

In addition to residents permits, a defined amount of time can be purchased by eligible residents who live within a Resident Permit Zone (RPZ) so that guests and visitors can park in that permit area

Resident Parking permits, renewals and visitor parking vouchers is now managed through our new online permit system

Eligible resident permit holders no longer need to visit our offices to manage their permit and vouchers and instead can be accessed online.

In order to do this, you will need to set up an online account

The system allows you to:

  • Purchase and/or renew resident permits and carer permits (see T&Cs for more information on carer permits)
  • Amend vehicle details or existing permits
  • Purchase virtual visitor hours (minimum £5 purchase)
  • Register vehicle details online to allow visitors to park

If you have any questions regarding the new system, please see our handy guides on Create an account and apply for a permit guide [771KB]   and Applying for and using visiting permits guide [318KB]  or see our frequently answered questions page.

If you are moving out of your property and are looking for a refund of full months worth of remaining time left on your permit, you may apply using the above form found in the downloads section
