Loading permits allow 20 minutes of loading anywhere on-street where loading is permitted. (For example, on single or double yellow lines when no loading ban is in place). The permit is not valid in car parks.

Businesses that need to park to load or unload in an area where parking is controlled can apply to us for a permit.

Businesses can apply for more than one permit provided the chosen vehicles are registered to the business.

The permit is valid for one specific vehicle at a time, but two vehicle registration numbers can be shown on the same permit.

There must be a valid reason for the request, for example there are no reasonable alternatives for parking and it will not cause a safety or traffic issue.

An annual Loading Permit costs £100
