Carers parking permits
About carers parking permits
If you live in Barnet within a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) and need essential home visits by a doctor, district nurse, similar healthcare professional or voluntary carers, you can apply for a carers parking permit.
Carer permits can only be used by individuals living in their own home to provide parking for healthcare visits.
Residents can give their carers permit to such visitors to enable them to park in a 'Resident Permit Holders Only' or 'Permit Holder Only' during their visit.
Carers permits are issued free of charge.
