If you are not eligible for 30 free permits, you must buy your permits online through My Newham.

Before you apply

There are three different types of permit, each valid for a different length of time:
​Type ​Number of permits per pack ​Cost per pack
​6 hours ​10 £12​
​10 hours
​5 ​£15
​24 hours
​5 ​£25
You can currently buy a maximum of 20 permits (in any combination) per household, per month.

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).  

Before you start, make sure the address that you wish to buy parking permits for is registered to your My Newham account.
