Proof of vehicle ownership (parking permits)

To apply for a resident parking permit you need to prove that you own or have official use of the vehicle.

We can accept any of the following documents:

  • Vehicle registration document (V5) showing your name
  • Hire or lease agreement showing your name
  • Current certificate or schedule of insurance showing the vehicle registration number and that you are a named driver
  • A copy of the sales invoice from a dealership showing the vehicle registration number and your name.

For a vehicle registered to a company you must supply a letter on company letterhead paper confirming your address within the controlled parking zone and that you are the only user of the vehicle.

If you are not the registered keeper of the vehicle, (perhaps the vehicle is registered to your parent or partner) we need you to provide the following three documents:

  • A letter from the registered keeper of the vehicle confirming that you are the main user and keeper of the vehicle
  • A copy of the vehicle registration document
  • A copy of an insurance certificate or schedule detailing your name and address in the controlled parking zone and the vehicle's registration number, or a recent letter from the insurance company verifying that the vehicle is usually kept by you at the controlled parking zone address
