Street parking permits

There are various permit parking schemes in operation throughout the county.

These controlled parking zones, often called residents' parking schemes, are to help those living in areas where there is a high demand for on-street parking, such as town centres and near large employers. They give residents priority, but do not entitle residents to their own parking space or guarantee every householder a parking space at all times.

Applying for a parking permit

If you live on a street with a residents' parking scheme and you meet the eligibility criteria, you can apply.

To apply for a permit contact your borough council if you live in the Harrogate or Scarborough areas.

If you live in Hambleton you must complete and return this word icon application form [31kb]. If you live in Richmondshire you must complete and return this word icon application form [32kb]
