Healthcare permits are available to people or companies within the Chichester District working within the healthcare services and who need to visit patients in their homes within the Controlled Parking Zone. The permits give recognition to permitted vehicles being used in connection with domiciliary visits from medical/care personnel to residents in Residents Parking Schemes (RPS).

Apply, renew or pay for a healthcare permit

When renewing a heathcare permit, there are two stages to this process. First you have to renew the permit. This will give you a webcode. You will need this webcode to pay for a healthcare permit renewal.

An applicant will be required to provide a statement of need. This statement must highlight the frequency the holder visits the area within the Resident's Parking Scheme (RPS). It must be dated within 3 months of the application and state the applicants name.

In addition to the statement of need, we require written confirmation from a senior member of the organisation applying through which this statement should include:

  • How often staff visit locations in the Chichester District?
  • Do staff carry out their work elsewhere within the county?
  • How many days does each member of staff work per week?
  • Do your staff visit/report to a main premises in on a daily basis?

Please remember that without the information above we may not be able to process your application. The council reserve the right to refuse an application.

Using a Healthcare permit

Please ensure you read and agree to the healthcare permit terms and conditions.

Healthcare permits are only valid when a vehicle is parked in:

  • Shared use parking bays
  • Permit holder parking bays

The permits entitles the user to park for a maximum of 2 hours from the time of arrival at the parking space. They do not allow the holder to park on yellow line restrictions or in bays which are designated for vehicles of a particular class (i.e. disabled bays, loading bays etc.)

All permits are sent second class and this should be taken into account when applying for a permit. Permits are valid from the first of each month for a period of one year. Applicants should not park in a resident's bay until the permit or an alternative exemption is displayed.

We would be grateful if you could supply the following information to enable us to assess the number of permits we can offer you.

Lost permits

In the event of a permit being lost, an administration charge of £10.00 will apply for the issue of a replacement.

When your change request has been approved you will receive an email with a link to pay.

The permit holder must allow at least three working days for the permit to be reproduced and also consider council opening hours, bank and public holidays.

Healthcare permit refunds

To request a refund, the permit must be returned to Parking Services. Refunds can only be issued for the remaining full months of the Permit. This will be payable by BACS Transfer to the original payment card and a refund form must be filled out. If the refund needs to be transferred to a different card please fill in this section on the refund form:
