Parking permit prices and refunds

Information on the cost of parking permits and how to get a refund if you no longer need a permit or if you are no longer eligible.

Parking permit prices

The Council wants to encourage residents to choose less polluting vehicles, so we have linked vehicle exhaust emissions to the cost of parking permits. We base our tariff bands for permits on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions because all cars registered since March 2001 have official CO2 figures printed on their registration documents.

Car (and van) permits are priced according to CO2 emissions for vehicles registered after 1 March 2001 or engine size for vehicles registered before March 2001. These are shown on your Vehicle Registration Certificate (V5C).

All cars registered on, or after, 1 September 2015 meet the Euro 6 standard but many vehicles registered prior to that date do not, so the owners of such vehicles will need to prove their vehicles are Euro 6 compliant.

If you are unsure whether the subsequent permit charge should be applied to your application, please call us on 020 7361 4381.

We will send you a refund for any unused time calculated from the day we receive the permit in our office. There is a £25 administration charge for this service. You should receive your refund within 28 days.
