Resident Parking Permits

New Residents Parking Permit Applications

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 write to you to see if you would like to renew your permit which is the same as the price as new applications.

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 £40.  The second permit will cost £80.  Motorcycles receive a discounted rate of £19.

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