Resident parking permits

Business parking permit

If you run a registered business from a commercial address in Newham, you may be eligible for a business parking permit. With a business parking permit, you can park in permit holders only bays and shared use bays within any of our residential parking zones.  

You can’t apply for a business parking permit if you run a business from a residential address.

It is important to make sure that you keep an eye out for when your permit is expiring. If you display an expired permit, you may be issued with a penalty charge notice.  

In the event that you have not renewed your permit on time, please park your vehicle legally whilst you are waiting for your renewed permit.
