How can we help you...

Business Parking Permits

Please note: There is a problem with some residential and business parking permits that have been issued from September 2011 until July 2012.  The ink has faded making the details illegible.  If your permit is affected, please contact us on 03000 200 292 in order for a replacement to be issued.

Business permits are available to those whose business is located in a controlled parking zone (CPZ). 

How to apply

For first-time applications or renewals where details have changed, you will need to check which parking zone you are in, print out an application form, read the associated guidance and make your application either by post or in person. If you do not have printing facilities available at home you can use your local library or a copy can be collected from Marischal College or the Woodside, Kincorth and Mastrick Customer Access Points.

To find out which parking zone you are in, please download the Permit Entitlement List or the Permit Zone Street List.

To make an application, please download the relevant application form and guidance notes available on the right side of this page. 

  • For first time applications and renewals please use the Business Parking Permit Application Form and Guidance. 
  • If you have changed you address please use the Business Parking Permit Change of Address Form and Guidance. 
  • If you have changed your vehicle registration please use the Business Parking Permit Change of Vehicle Registration Form and Guidance. 
  • If you have lost, damaged or had your permit stolen please use the Business Parking Permit Replacement Form and Guidance.

You will need to provide proof of address and proof of vehicle registration before we can issue your permit. Please note we accept clear photocopies of your documents.

How to Renew

Parking Permit Renewal can be performed online if your address and vehicle details have not changed since your last permit was issued. You can pay on-line using any valid credit or debit card. Or alternatively, please download and complete the Business Parking Permit Renewal Application Form.

If your address or vehicle details have changed you can not renew your permit using either of the 2 renewal options. In this case a Business Parking Permit Application Form must be completed.

You will find all the information about what proof you need, if you are entitled to a permit and permit prices in the application form guidance notes as well as our Business Permits Frequently Asked Questions.
