Who can apply for a Residents Parking Permit?
You can apply for a CEPC Residents Parking Permit if you are a property’s lessee or resident. Permits are issued at the discretion of the CEPC and tenants may only be eligible where a lessee does not already have a permit issued to them.
How much does a Resident’s parking permits cost?
The initial issue of a parking permit is free of charge, however you must be a resident to apply for a parking permit.

Residents Permits are reissued annually in May and are valid until the following May, when a new one is required.
What information do I need to give to get a Residents Permit?
You need to show us or submit on-line:
- proof of residency (e.g. a completion statement, tenancy agreement, utility or Council Tax bill)
- V5 document for each vehicle you want to register on the permit
- your contact details
- acceptance of the permit Terms & Conditions
What if I don’t have the necessary documents?
We do need to see the relevant documentation for vehicles to be registered on a permit.

Can I register my van or a car that has advertising on it?
It is not possible to register on a Resident Permit any vans, commercial vehicles, camper vans, trailers or cars with prominent advertising displays on them.
How many parking permits can I have?
The majority of eligible properties are permitted only one resident’s parking permit, although space allows the following properties to have a maximum of two:
Brunswick Place (houses only)
Chester Close North
Cumberland Terrace (houses only)
Gloucester Gate (houses only)
Park Square East and West
St Katharine’s Precinct
What should I do if I change my car or get an additional one?
Let the CEPC know if you want to remove or add a vehicle to your existing permit(s). You will need to return any old permits and provide the necessary documents relating to the new vehicles.
There is an administration fee of £15.00 to reissue a permit if you want to change or add car details.
Where does my permit allow me to park?
Your Residents Permit is only valid for your terrace roadway. It is not valid for the Outer Circle Pay & Display or in any other terrace.
How many cars can I have on my permit?
Each permit can have up to six car registration numbers on it allowing any of the cars listed to use that permit, however you may only park one car per permit at a time. Permits are not transferable to vehicles whose registration is not printed on the permit.
Where do I display my permit?
Parking permits must be prominently displayed in your vehicle’s front windscreen, in a way that allows all parts of the permit to be easily read from outside the vehicle. If the details on your permit cannot be read, you are parking illegally.
Are there any properties which are not eligible for a permit?
If your property has a garage but is located in a terrace or mews where the lack of space means that on-street parking cannot be permitted, you can be issued with an Identification Permit which allows CEPC staff to identify the vehicle as belonging to a resident. Identification Permits do not authorise you to park in the roadway.
Permits are not issued for any property which fronts onto a road maintained by Westminster or Camden, e.g. Albany Street or Park Road.
Where can my visitors park?
Residents can purchase scratch-card Visitors Permits for their visitors to use. They are available in 2hr and 5 hr formats and are only valid for the purchasing resident’s visitors to park in their terrace roadway. Once issued, Visitors Permits are identifiable to an individual resident and are not transferable to other residents or users. They cannot be used to park legally in other terrace roadways.

Permits must be returned to the CEPC when you move away from the estate or if you need to get a replacement.
