Factsheet: Residents' parking permits
Terms and conditions
- Parking permits are issued at our discretion. They remain the property of DCC and may be withdrawn with notice at any time if these terms and conditions are not met.
- A resident’s permit may only be used by the named person it is issued for and for a vehicle registered at the property it is sent to. You should not hold more than one permit at any time.
- You must be a resident of the property to hold a resident’s permit. Resident’s permits are not issued to landlords or property owners.
- Business permits can’t be used for commuting, and must be used for commercial activities, such as routine daily deliveries.
- Parking permits must be displayed in the front windscreen of the vehicle so that all the printed details can be clearly seen and read by a traffic warden or police officer when parked. Failure to clearly display a valid permit will result in a parking ticket being issued.
- The permit does not guarantee a parking space outside the property. The vehicle is only permitted to park on a road in the area or zone indicated on the permit.
- Altering or changing a permit will render it invalid, and it will be invalid if it is used in any other vehicle than the one specified on the front of the permit.
- It is your responsibility to tell us of any changes to your address or car registration details, so your permit can be changed or cancelled.
- Permits are non-transferrable. No refunds will be given for part used, damaged or invalidated permits.
- It is the driver’s responsibility to ensure that the vehicle is parked safely and wholly within the confines of a marked parking place. The vehicle should not be parked wholly or partly on a footpath or verge, or in a hazardous manner.
- The vehicle must be moved on the instructions of a police officer, traffic warden, council officer or utility company contractor in pursuit of their duties.
- All vehicles must have a valid MOT, insurance certificate and car tax to use a resident’s parking permit in an on-street parking place.
- We reserve the right not to issue parking permits where the vehicle or person involved has unresolved or unpaid Penalty Charge Notices (parking tickets).
- All data collected from issuing permits, or issuing parking tickets arising from the misuse of a permit may be used in conjunction with any of our reporting functions or other enforcement agencies for the purpose of this enforcement as required by law or part of a police investigation. All processing of this data will be in accordance with the UK Data Protection Act 1998.
