Parking FAQs

Residents of properties within the zone would be eligible to purchase up to 2 residents permits and they may allocate them to whichever vehicles they choose.  Tenants not paying council tax might like to consult with their landlord/landlady about the permit allocation for the property.

Resident permits are issued per council tax reference number – see our parking permits page.

Resident permits and visitor permits are digital permits, rather than paper permits.  Visitor permits last for 1 day, except at weekends when they cover both Saturday and Sunday.

The days and times that parking restrictions are in force are stated on the time plate sign in the vicinity, where applicable.  

To report a vehicle that is incorrectly parked please email

For example:

  • parking on double yellow lines
  • parking on a single yellow line when restrictions are in place
  • parking over a dropped tactile kerb or any dropped kerb on a pedestrian footpath

The police should be contacted on 101 for:

  • parking on the pavement
  • obstruction

We employ a service provider who carries out enforcement and administration on our behalf, but we are still fully responsible for managing on-street parking in Gloucestershire.

You will need to contact GCC Highways on 08000 514514 or email

Civil Enforcement Officers (CEOs) are not allocated targets or incentivised in any way to issue Penalty Charge Notices PCNs.  If a vehicle is noted as parking in contravention of the restrictions then the CEO will issue a PCN. All income is paid to the County Council and is used for highways and transportation schemes.
