Traders permit

Traders Permits can be applied for by traders working within the Controlled Parking Zones who own a vehicle which is required to carry out the running of the business and to those businesses that require constant access to a delivery vehicle throughout the day.

A permit cannot be issued for the use of occasional loading or unloading activities as this may take place at any time providing that the vehicle is not causing an obstruction or parked in a prohibited area.

Other traders or those in the service sector are not entitled to a permit and should seek alternative parking i.e. pay and display/voucher parking bays, Dispensations Notices or Resident Visitor Permits.
