Visitor permits are now paperless. You can register your visitor's vehicle in advance or when they arrive.
The process takes only a few minutes and once you have registered for the first time, subsequent visitor applications are completed quickly. Parking attendants are given the details of your visitor's vehicle on the electronic readers they carry.
Per hour: £1.40 or £10 for a batch of 10*
Per half-day (up to five hours): £2.80
Per day: £5.60
Per week: £20
There may be times when you do not know when your visitor will arrive, how long they will stay or what their vehicle details are e.g. if someone is doing work in your home or will be at your house when you are not there. In these circumstances, you can buy scratch cards in advance online or in person at Lewisham Library.
Your visitor can complete their details on their arrival and put the scratch card on the dashboard of their vehicle in the normal way. If you are buying permits from Lewisham Library, you will need to bring a current council tax or utility bill as proof of residency.
You will need a visitor permit if your visitor wishes to park in a residents' bay in the CPZ during zone operating times. A permit is not necessary outside of the CPZ operating times.
If you do not wish to buy a visitor permit your visitor will need to park in one of the following places:
on your driveway or your land
outside the operating times of the controlled parking zone when parking is free and unrestricted
in a pay and display space
We implement parking controls to manage the demand for kerbside parking in areas where there aren't many parking spaces.
We introduce permits and charges to manage these areas and make sure that kerbside parking is available for permit holders who live and work within the CPZ.
*We will give a free book of 10 one-hour visitor parking permits to all households that have at least one paid-for resident parking permit holder per year. We will also give a free book of 10 one-hour visitor parking permits each year to any residents in CPZs who are over 60 and get council tax support.
