Parking zone V - Hanover and Elm Grove area (full touch scheme)

A full touch parking scheme in the Hanover and Elm Grove area of the city started on 2 October 2017.

This area is often called parking zone V on street signs and maps.

How do I buy a resident parking permit or visitor permits?

If you live in this zone you can buy parking permits online.

You need to register for an account first – make sure you read and accept the Terms and Conditions.

As you fill in the registration form we will run an online ID check to confirm that you live at the address you’ve selected. If we can’t confirm your address, we’ll ask you to upload two proofs of address that need to be checked by a member staff. This may take a few days, please bear with us. When your details have been verified, we will email you.

Once you’ve registered for an account you can log in to the system to buy a resident parking permit for yourself, or visitor parking permits for your visitors.

Second resident parking permits for the same address

Second resident parking permits for the same address are currently available. These are sold on a first come, first served basis.

Please note this will apply to the property. A resident can only hold one resident permit in their name. If another resident in the household needs a permit then we recommend they go online and register. We will then verify their account ahead of the sale of second permits.

If there are more applications than permit allocations, a waiting list may need to be created.
