Residents parking permits
Apply for other types of parking permit
Visitors' parking permits
Residents are able to apply for scratchcards for use by visitors. The allowance is two books of 'all day' and two books of 'four-hour' permits per household, per year. The validity of the All Day visitor scratch cards extends to 10.00am of the day following the date indicated on the scratch card. In addition, residents can also purchase an additional book of either ‘four-hour’ or ‘all day’ permits.
It is not necessary to provide evidence of residency at the time of application however, Swindon Borough Council reserve the right to conduct spot checks of eligibility during the life of the permits. Failure to provide evidence when requested will lead to the cancellation of permits.
|Visitor scratch permits (pack of 25)||£15.00 (free to residents 60years or over)|

The scratch cards will be sent to you by post so please allow a minimum of 10 working days for the scratch cards to arrive.
Contractors' parking permits
If you are having work carried out and you need a contractor (e.g. a builder or electrician) to use a Residents' Parking bay, then you or your contractor can apply for a special temporary permit to park in a Resident Parking bay. These can be used Monday to Friday, 8.00am to 5.30pm. Please note, vehicles must be under 5 tonnes in line with terms and conditions for business permits.
A letter on headed paper from the contractor confirming work is being undertaken must be provided. The date of the letter should be no more than 2 months prior to the application and should clearly show the address where the work is being carried out and the expected duration of work.
|Contractors permit||£12.50 per week|
Operational one-hour parking permits
These are 'scratch card'-type permits intended for use by those who need to park for a short term on several occasions - rather than for long periods, for which a Contractors' Permit (see above) would be better suited.
Each permit is valid for up to one hour when parked in any designated resident parking bay.
|Operational one-hour parking permit||£22.00 per 20 permits|
These are typically bought by operators, not by residents.
Special needs parking permits
Residents who rely on a regular visitor (e.g. a carer) can apply for a permit which will allow them to use a Residents' Parking bay.
Each permit can be used for different vehicles (e.g. in case it's not always the same carer who calls), but only for one vehicle at a time.
You must provide a letter from a doctor confirming the need. For those who are 80 years old or over evidence of date of birth, such as birth certificate or passport, can be provided instead of the note from a doctor.
|Special needs parking permit||£40.00 per year|
Business parking permits
A business situated within a resident zone may be eligible to apply for a permit to park in resident bays in that zone. Applications should be made on company headed paper. Please note that only two permits can be issued.
|Zone A Crombey Street Area||£595 per year|
|All Other Zones Business Permits||£510 per year|
