Parking permits

Parking permits are issued by Gloucestershire County Council. If you are a resident in a permit zone, and you have a current council tax number then you are eligible for two parking permits and 50 visitor vouchers per year (see below).

Apply for a resident permit

The parking permit application will ask you to supply your council tax account number; you can find this on your council tax bill.  Please note that to protect the information on your council tax account this number cannot be given to you over the telephone

 If you do not have a copy of your bill you can;

  • Telephone or email your local council tax office on to request another copy to be posted to your property.
  • Visit the council tax office to collect copy of your bill.  Please note you will need to ensure that you take photo identification with you which confirms your address, a copy of your bill cannot be given to you without identification. 
  • If you have just moved in and need to register for council tax or notify a change of address, please contact your local council tax office.

 Before making an application please read the terms and conditions as refunds cannot be given.

Apply online through MiPermit 
(Tel: 0333 123 5900)


The Council will remind the permit holder by email only when annual permits are due to expire; however it remains the permit holder's responsibility to renew in a timely manner.  Permit holders can check the status of the permit by logging into their on-line account or contacting MiPermit (Tel: 0333 123 5900) for further details.

Parking permits are issued via MiPermit (Tel: 0333 123 5900). If you are a resident in a permit zone, and pay your own council tax, you are eligible to purchase  50 visitors vouchers per year.
