New parking charges for 2021: visitor permits

We are introducing new emissions-based charges for visitor parking permits. The date of introduction for the new charges will be announced shortly.

To find the new charge for a resident or visitor parking permit you will need to know:

There are two parts to the charge:

  1. location and CO2 emission based charge
  2. ULEZ-based surcharge

1. Location and CO2 emissions based charge

Find the parking zone's 'tier' and 'length of enforcement' in the first table below, then look up the permit charge based on the car's CO2 emissions in the second table.
