Resident’s carers permits are available to those residents relying on an unofficial carer. The resident must be a disabled blue badge holder. The permit allows the carer to park their vehicle whilst providing care to the resident.
You can register more than one vehicle on your online account and then nominate which vehicle you need to park, as and when required. It is important to ensure the vehicle you have parked is the vehicle active on your account.
The cost of a resident's carer permit is currently £20 per year.
A check will be made on the Council Tax and Electoral Roll records to verify residence.
Documentary evidence is required, you will need to produce:
- carers registration document (all pages)
- tenancy agreement (if not named on the Council Tax or Electoral Roll records)
- copy of valid disabled blue badge
- doctor's letter (this must include carers name and address)
If you are unable to provide the required documentary evidence or are unsure about what to supply please contact the Parking Administration Section on 01202 634240.
