Charity business parking permits

If you are a Newham based charity, you may be able to apply for a permit to use a vehicle for visits across the borough.

Before you begin your application, you will need to:

  • A letter from the charity on headed paper dated within three months, which includes the vehicle registration and an explanation as to why the vehicle is needed for visits across the borough for charity purposes
  • Proof of address for the charity - an official lease agreement in the business name or current national non-domestic rate demand or a bank statement dated within three months or utility bill dated within three months.

Please note: when renewing your permit you must select a start date for your new permit to begin. The MiPermit Newham system will default to today’s date on the application page. Please ensure this is updated if you require your permit to start from a later date. You will only be able to renew your permit up to four weeks in advance.
