Carer permits

West Sussex County Council is the authority responsible for on-street parking provision. Parking Services at Chichester District Council process and issue permits on their behalf.

Carers permits can be issued to residents receiving care who live within the controlled parking zones. The permit is issued to the resident of the property and can then be used by the carer whilst they are providing domiciliary care.
