Renew a parking permit

Renew your resident parking permit (not city centre)

You can renew your resident permit online if you either:

  • Received a residents' parking permit renewal letter
  • Have a permit expiring within the next 21 days

The charges for renewing a permit will be the same as when you first applied for your resident permit. See charges for parking permits.

The permit must not have expired over 21 days ago, and you must not have changed address since your permit was issued.

If your permit expired over 21 days ago, or you have changed address since your permit was issued, you will need to apply for a new residents' permit instead.

You also cannot renew temporary permits (one month or three month permits) online. You would need to apply for a new resident permit instead.

Remember: It is the permit holder's responsibility to renew their parking permit on time. You may be liable to receive a parking ticket (penalty charge notice) if you park in a permit holder’s space and your permit has been expired for more than seven days.

Section 115 of the Road Traffic Regulations Act, 1984

Provides penalties for any person who makes a false statement to obtain a permit or with intent to deceive, forges, or alters, or uses, or lends to, or allows to be used, or has in their possession any document so closely resembling any such permit as to be calculated to deceive.

Misuse of a parking permit is fraud. We will investigate all reports of the misuse of permits.
