Essential worker parking permits

If you are an ‘essential worker’ you can apply for a permit that will let you park in our car parks for free.

The permit lets you park for free in any of car parks except the Grand Arcade car park. You can use your permit at any time while you are working in the city.

Check the government’s list of businesses and venues that can remain open – if you work for any of the listed businesses, you can apply for a permit.

To apply, complete and return an application form.

If you or your organisation are eligible, we’ll send you your permit by email.

We expect this scheme to remain in operation until 2 December, or until the lockdown ends if it is extended past that date.

On-street parking permits

The county council provides information about on-street parking permits for critical-care workers.
