Note 1: Permit types – It is anticipated that a standard permit will be available to each household requesting one. It is hoped, although not guaranteed, that a second Permit will be available but this may have to be on a first come first served basis and be dependent upon available road space and on the number of ‘first permit requests’ received. Application for only one of any permit type (except for business permits, see Note 3) can be considered i.e. you cannot apply for two type A permits etc.

Note 2: One-off joining fee – A one-off joining fee is applied per household and is based upon the cost of the works that are required to implement the scheme (road signs, road markings, kerbing / footway alterations etc.) and the number of households joining the scheme. The joining fee will be charged to new scheme members irrespective of when an application is made.

Note 3: Business Permit – Where a business is situated within the restricted zone a limited number of permits may be issued for use by either employees or business vehicles within that zone. A total of two permits may be issued for the first five employees and one permit for every five employees thereafter, (up to a maximum of four permits).

Note 4: Trades people wishing to access premises and who cannot utilise a resident’s general visitor permit may apply to Staffordshire County Council for a temporary parking waiver to enable them to park within the restricted zone.
