Emissions based charging

Resident permit emissions based charges

From January 6, 2021 parking permit charges per household became subject to an additional emissions based charge.

We are continuing to give residents more choice about the length of time they would like to renew a permit for – 3 months, 6 months or 12 months. This will help residents spread the cost of their permit over 3 months, 6 months or 12 months if they wish to do so.

Please note: charges are based on CO2 emissions. For vehicles registered before 2001, please use the engine size column to identify your cost. For vehicles registered 2001 and after, please use the CO2 column.

If you are unsure which tier your vehicle falls in please refer to the vehicle log book (VQ5) which will contain this information.

Zero CO2 emissions

The Council reserves the right to check applications for vehicles with zero CO2 emissions.

DVLA records may show your vehicle CO2 emissions as ‘blank’. Vehicles that are considered zero emissions will be indicated by the DVLA with an applicable number (e.g. 0) on the vehicle’s logbook.  Where CO2 information is blank, permit prices will be based on vehicle engine size. If you are unsure which tier your vehicle falls in please refer to the vehicle log book (VQ5) which will contain this information.

If your vehicle is a Hybrid (both electric & fuel driven) any permit charge will be based on the CO2 emissions which the vehicle emits or its fuel engine size if CO2 emission data is not available.
