Applying for or renewing a permit

To apply for a permit, create an account and complete an online application. 

Please allow at least 5 days for your application to be processed. 

Before making an application, please make sure that you have a scanned image or clear photograph of the following documents:

  1. Proof of your address, either in the form of a Council Tax bill dated within the last 12 months, a Lease or Solicitor's letter confirming that your current address is within the controlled Parking zone for Perth or Crieff.
  2. Proof of vehicle ownership in the form of a Vehicle Registration Document (V5), Vehicle Lease agreement or a company signed letter on headed paper to confirm you are the main driver of the vehicle.  The document should also be addressed to you at your address within the controlled Parking zone for Perth or Crieff.

If you can't confirm your residency and vehicle ownership from the document examples given above, you can apply for a Season Ticket until you can provide these to us.

We will assess your application after you've sent us it online.  If your application is successful, you will receive an email which will allow you to make payment online.  Following payment, you will be issued with a virtual permit.

Making changes to your permit

If you hold a virtual permit, you can log on to your account and request a change to your vehicle details or cancel your permit.

If you hold a paper permit (issued prior to 24 May 2021) and have changed your vehicle, please return your permit to our address, along with a copy of your updated V5, Vehicle Lease agreement or letter on headed paper from your company for your permit to be updated.  If you no longer require your permit, you must return your permit to our address and complete a refund form to be issued with a refund on any time remaining.  Refund forms can be obtained by contacting ParkingServices@pkc.gov.uk
