Parking permits for Covid-19 critical care workers

Critical NHS staff and health and social care key workers and volunteers can now apply for a digital parking permit to use when on duty or performing home visits during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

This free digital permit will allow the care worker to park their vehicle in Resident Permit Parking Areas and Pay and Display bays on the highway, whilst carrying out essential duties.

Please submit your application using the online form below. Your request will be processed within the next working day and you will receive a notification email when your digital permit is active. You won't need to display a permit within your vehicle as the permit is digital.
