Terms and conditions for visitor eVouchers and short-term visitor ePermits

Permits are single use only as required. They are only valid in the permit area zone specified on the permit - this is shown on the signs accompanying the bays. They are only valid for the specified number of hours shown on the voucher.

A permit will only be issued to a vehicle under 3,500 kg in weight - this is the former private/light goods taxation class. A permit cannot be used for parking on double yellow lines, single yellow lines, other limited wait areas, in pay and display car parks, private roads, zig-zag lines, taxi/doctors/police/disabled bays or bus stops.

The permits do not guarantee the availability of a parking place.

We reserve the right to withdraw any permit found to have been fraudulently applied for or misused and no refund will be issued.
