Parking permits - terms and conditions
Before you can apply for a Doctor's permit you need to ensure you have a doctor's parking bay. This needs to be approved by the Parking Design team and can take up to 3 months to process. We cannot issue a Doctor's permit until you have a doctor's parking bay. When you apply for a parking permit you agree to our terms and conditions.
Doctor's permit renewals require proof to be submitted every three years, they must be renewed either shortly before, or on the date the existing permit expires. Failure to follow this procedure could result in a penalty charge notice (PCN). When you apply for a parking permit you agree to our terms and conditions.

- The permit does not allow you to park in a 'Resident Permit Holders Only' parking place, Pay and Display bays, yellow lines or any other parking restriction.
- The issue of a Doctor's permit does not render the council subject to any liability in respect of loss or damage to the vehicle in a parking place or the contents or fittings of the vehicle.
- The permit must be displayed on the front windscreen of the vehicle so that the details are clearly visible from outside the vehicle.
