These permits are available to enable teachers to park in permit holder bays (except Residents only bays) and shared-use bays in the zone where the school is situated.
The head teacher of a school within a controlled parking zone which has either a current approved School Travel Plan or current approved Green Travel Plan, or both may apply for teacher permits; this is in addition to the required criteria as shown below.
- Permits are only valid in the bays shown in the maps below.
- Permits will only be issued after the spare parking capacity has been assessed.
- All permit applications must be made by the Head Teacher rather than individual teachers.
- The number of School permits to be issued would be strictly limited if the uptake of residents' permits is in excess of 75%; spare capacity is less than 25% and in cases where the numbers of permits outweigh the number of available spaces.
- Permits will be issued only to those schools with an up to date School Travel Plan or Green Travel plan.
- The Council reserves the right to remove or reduce the number of permits pending on changes on parking capacity; any fraudulent act or abuse.
