Factsheet: Residents' parking permits


Residents’ parking schemes are used in areas where there is more demand than spaces. They don’t guarantee a parking space but help manage parking for people living in those areas.

Check to see if your area has a parking scheme and read our terms and conditions to ensure you can have a permit.

If your area has a scheme and your vehicle is registered at your address you should:

  • apply to purchase a permit as soon as possible online at www.devonpermits.org or by phoning 0345 155 1073 – if you don’t have internet access you can use your local library’s computers free of charge
  • display a valid permit at all times when parked in a residents only area – if you don’t you can receive a parking ticket

If your vehicle is not registered at the permit address please contact us at parkingservices@devon.gov.uk or on 0345 155 1004 for further advice before buying a permit.
