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.

Parking Dispensations

A Parking Dispensation can be issued when a motorist needs to park in an area where parking restrictions are in place. This would allow a vehicle to park lawfully in what would otherwise be a contravention of a Traffic Regulation Order.

Parking Reports

The council submits an annual report to the Department for Transport, showing statistics relating to the Enforcement of On-Street restrictions.

Parking Traffic Regulation Orders

Parking restrictions in the district, and the conditions of use of permitted parking areas, are defined in Traffic Regulation Orders. If a new restriction is introduced, a new Traffic Regulation Order must be created in order to give the restriction legal authority.
