Resident access permits

You can apply for a resident access permit if you live in an area that has restricted access.

Apply for a resident access permit 

The vehicle for which a parking permit is being applied for must not exceed 2.3 metres in height and/or 5.3 metres in length.

It is the applicant’s responsibility to check their vehicle dimensions before applying for a parking permit.

If a permit is issued and it is found that the vehicle exceeds the above dimensions the permit will be cancelled and any appropriate payment refund will be made. Vehicles seen displaying a cancelled permit during the operational hours of a Resident Parking Zone (RPZ) will be issued with a penalty charge notice (PCN).  

Please read the full permit terms and conditions in the application form before making your application.

Resident access permits are free of charge.
Print and complete the form, then either bring it to East Ham Customer Service Centre or send it to us by post.

Renew a resident access permit

It is your responsibility to renew your permit. You must renew in the same way as you apply for a new permit.

You can renew your permit up to six weeks before its expiry date. However you must allow a minimum of 10 working days for your permit to be processed, posted and arrive at your address.

If you make a late renewal, make sure you park legally until you receive your renewed permit.

Change of circumstances

If you have a permit, you must tell us if you change your vehicle or address.
You must also tell us if you no longer need your permit.
