Parking permits

We issue resident permits to people living in properties included in a residential parking scheme. Resident permits cost £38.50 for 12 months and can only be used with the vehicle named on the permit.

You can apply for all permits, within one month of expiry by emailing or post to Parking Services, PO Box 4907, Stoke-on-Trent, ST6 9FU.

We need: 

  • proof your vehicle is registered to the property, such as your vehicle log book or insurance certificate
  • recent proof of address dated within three months, such as a utility bill or bank statement

If you are a student and your vehicle is registered at your home address and not your term-time address, you will need to email your log book or insurance schedule along with your tenancy agreement and student card. 

If your vehicle is owned by your company, provide a letter from your employer on headed paper stating you need to keep the vehicle near your property. 

Please note: all permits must be applied for via email or post


We are currently receiving a high demand for residential and visitor parking permits. Your request will be dealt with as soon as possible but please allow 10 working days before contacting us again.

When we have processed your application, you will receive an email containing a payment link.  On receipt of payment your permit/s will be posted to you usually within five working days.
