Parking permit prices and refunds

Parking permit prices

The price of your parking permit will depend on its registration date and how much carbon dioxide (CO2) your vehicle produces.

We’ve linked parking permit costs to CO2 emissions because we want to encourage everyone in the borough to drive more environmentally friendly cars. By reducing pollution levels we can all benefit from better local air quality.

Car registration dates fall into three categories:

  • after March 2001:find your vehicle’s official CO2 figures on your registration documents
  • before March 2001: CO2 figures weren’t recorded before this date so we’ll base your permit price on your vehicle’s engine size instead. Find this on your Vehicle Registration Certificate (V5C)
  • after 1 September 2015: your vehicle meets the Euro 6 standard, which limits emissions from cars

If you need any guidance call us on 020 7361 4381.
