Resident Permit

Information about parking permits for residents, including where Resident Permits are valid, who qualifies for a permit, and how to purchase or renew a permit.

What is a Resident Permit?

Resident Permits give residents an exemption from a particular parking restriction nearby to where they live. This is usually an exemption from a limited waiting restriction (a time restriction), however there are also a small number of streets within the East Riding that are reserved for Resident Permit holders only.

Resident Permits are issued to residents living within a Controlled Parking Zone, or on a street that is covered by a Resident Permit Scheme. Controlled Parking Zones cover large areas, and Resident Permit holders can park in any qualifying parking bay within the whole zone, whereas Resident Permit Schemes only cover an individual street. 

Both Controlled Parking Zones and Resident Permit Schemes are introduced in locations where residents have particular trouble parking nearby to their homes, such as if they live in an area popular with tourists or commuters. 

In the East Riding, Blue Badge holders are not required to obtain a Resident Permit, as displaying a valid Blue Badge in a vehicle offers the same exemptions as a Resident Permit.

Do I qualify for a Resident Permit?

If your property is situated within the boundary of a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ), or if you live on a street covered by a Resident Permit Scheme (RPS), it is likely that you will qualify for a Resident Permit. There are some exceptions to this however, such as if this is a holiday home and not your primary residence, or if your property has an off-street parking facility. When installing a Controlled Parking Zone or Resident Permit Scheme, the council assesses each affected property individually.

You will not qualify for a Resident Permit if any of the following apply:  

  • You own a property within a CPZ or RPS, but you live elsewhere (such as if you are a landlord, or if you are renovating a property) 

  • You live at a property within a CPZ or RPS but this is not your primary residence (such as if this is a holiday home)  

  • You work within a CPZ or RPS but live elsewhere  

  • You are a tourist 

  • You are a member of staff or a guest at a hotel/guesthouse 

  • Your vehicle is not registered with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) at an address within a CPZ or RPS. 

Please note: you will not qualify for a permit if the council has reason to believe that any of the above criteria applies, we may request additional evidence to support your application for a Resident Permit, even if a Resident Permit has already been issued.

Where are the Controlled Parking Zones within the East Riding?

The council currently has four Controlled Parking Zones. These are Beverley, Bridlington Zone A, Bridlington Zone B and Howden.

Where can I park with a Resident Permit?

Resident Permits can be used to park in any parking place within your particular Controlled Parking Zone or Resident Permit Scheme location, where the adjacent signage states ‘Resident permit holders’.

Please see examples of signage below.

In Bridlington, the sign also specifies either Zone A or Zone B, such as the in the photograph on the right:

Parking signs

From time to time, the council may need to suspend the use of a number of parking places for reasons such as to enable essential maintenance works to take place. Notices displayed on-street will advise motorists of the dates and times of the suspension.

Resident Permits will not be valid in any affected parking places during these times, therefore permit holders should make alternative parking arrangements.

How do I apply for a Resident Permit?

Resident Permits are a virtual permit and are purchased through the MiPermit system. You input your vehicle registration mark when purchasing a permit, then when a Civil Enforcement Officer checks the registration mark on their handheld computer, they can view your permit details.

To apply for a Resident Permit you will need your Council Tax Reference Number; this can be found on your Council Tax bill. If you are unable to locate your Council Tax Reference Number please contact the Council Tax Department on (01482) 393939.

Resident Permits are paid for using a credit or debit card, so please also have this to hand when purchasing a permit.
