Parking permit for residents
If your usual residence is in Perth City Centre, you can apply for a resident's parking permit to allow you to park without time restriction within the controlled parking zone.
You are entitled to apply for one permit for one vehicle but any number of permits can be issued to a residence. If everyone who lives in a property keeps and uses a vehicle, they can each apply for a permit.
A Residents Parking Permit will not be issued if there are outstanding Penalty Charge Notices against the vehicle or the applicant.
Please note that a Residents Permit or Season Ticket cannot be obtained at the point of application in person at any of our offices.
