Carer Permit Information

Carers permits are available to any carer who is in receipt of DWP Carers Allowance and is providing care to a resident living in a Controlled Parking Zone regardless whether the carer lives in the borough or not.

Carer parking permits are virtual which means that there is no need to display a paper permit in the vehicle. Civil enforcement officers will be able to identify which vehicles have a valid permit from the vehicle registration number.

You will need to supply:

    • Proof of receipt of DWP Carers Allowance

    • Address of the person you are caring for

Photographs of documentation will be accepted if you do not have access to a scanner.

Permits are single vehicle specific and not transferable between vehicles.

To apply for a permit click the apply button at the bottom of this text.

If you are not in receipt of DWP Carers Allowance please contact for more details on how to obtain a Carers permit. If you ARE in receipt of DWP Carers Allowance then the permit is free.
