Industrial parking permit

Please note: our East Ham Customer Service Centre is currently unable to process any face-to-face parking applications due to Covid-19.

If you work in an industrial parking zone (IPZ), you may be eligible for an industrial parking permit. An industrial parking permit can be used in any shared use bay. This is a bay where both IPZ permit holders and motorists who pay to park using the cashless (PayByPhone) system can park.

Apply for a three month industrial permit

When you can expect to receive your permit 

If your application is successful, it can take up to 10 working days for the permit to get to you by post.  

Please do note that an industrial parking permit is only valid when it is displayed clearly in the vehicle. A confirmation email regarding your application does not allow you to park in a controlled parking area. Any vehicle parked in a controlled parking area without a valid permit clearly displayed may receive a penalty charge notice.  

Renew an industrial parking permit 

You can renew your permit up to four weeks before its expiry date. However, please do allow a minimum of 10 working days for your permit to be processed, posted and arrive at your address. 

If you make a late renewal, make sure you park legally until you receive your renewed permit. 

If your details are the same 

If you are an existing permit holder and your address and vehicle details are the same, email a copy of the letter from your employer on headed paper dated within the last three months that confirms your name and vehicle registration to [email protected] 

Once we process your renewal we will contact you for payment and your permit will be sent out by post to your address. 

If your permit has expired you must apply for a new permit online.  

If your details have changed 

If your permit has not expired but you have changed your vehicle you will need to email your logbook to [email protected] to exchange your permit for your new vehicle.

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.
