Parking permits

Residents Permit Parking Zones (RPZs)

Currently within the Borough there are six operational RPZ's, which are located within Stockton West area, Hardwick Estate area, Trinity Gardens area, Eaglescliffe Station area, Yarm High Street and West Street area.

The Council introduces RPZs where there is evidence of residents having difficulty parking in close proximity to their homes due to the use of areas for prolonged non-resident parking particularly where there is alternative parking provision.

Residents within each zone are entitled to apply for a residents permit in line with the guidance. In addition, residents can also request to purchase a visitor permit if necessary.

The permits allow residents or visitors to park within the specified zone during the hours of operation. Currently there is an annual charge of £10 per resident or visitor permit this contributes towards the cost of administering and enforcing the scheme.

In 2018/19 a total of 912 permits were issued across the zones.

Further information about the council's residents parking schemes can be found at on our resident parking schemes page.

Market Permits
