Resident parking permits

Visitor parking permits

If you live in Newham, you can apply for resident visitor parking permits which will allow your visiting friends, family or service providers working at your home to park near your home. 

Visitor permits allow visitors to park in a permit holder only bay, or a shared use bay during controlled hours. Any vehicle parked in a controlled parking area without a valid permit may receive a penalty charge notice.

The council no longer issues paper based visitor permits however any remaining paper visitor permits will remain valid until expiry (or the end of 2022, whichever comes first). There will be no refunds for visitor permits which are not used before expiry.

Currently a total maximum of 20 resident visitor permits can be purchased in a monthly cycle. Once the limit has been met no more visitor permits can be purchased. The allocation resets on the anniversary of when it is obtained each month by the applicant for example if an allocation is obtained on the 17th a new allocation will be available from 17th the following month.

To apply for visitor permits you need to register on MiPermit Newham.

You will need to provide:

  • a proof of address - Council Tax bill, utility bill or bank statement (dated within the last three months) or
  • a tenancy agreement (dated within the last month) or
  • a mortgage offer letter or completion of sale letter from solicitor.

Once registered you can book visitor parking requests online to start immediately or up to 14 days in advance. Select visitor parking, the duration needed and then pay.
