Estate resident permits are changing to electronic permits (e-permits)
This means that a paper permit won't be posted to you and you won't need to display a paper permit in your vehicle. Civil enforcement officers will be able to check that you have a valid permit by entering your vehicle registration into their handheld devices.
Current estate permit holders should continue to display their permit in their vehicle, but once it has expired, they will be issued an e-permit upon renewal. If your permit is lost, damaged or stolen or if you change your vehicle before your current permit expires, you will also be issued an e-permit as a replacement.
Permit holders can still check the status of their e-permit or manage changes to their e-permit online at any time via their customer account and renewal reminders will still be sent to permit holders 6 weeks before the permit is due to expire.
Who can apply?
If you live in an estate parking zone you're entitled to apply for an estate e-permit, but it doesn't guarantee you a parking space. Estate parking permits can only be used where indicated by signage, in the designated estate parking zones they are issued for. Estate parking zones are identified by a 'Z' prefix on all parking signage within an estate, for example Z24 is Alden house estate. You won't be allowed to buy an estate parking permit, if your rent or service charges account is in arrears.
You can still order your estate parking visitor vouchers online, as well as through our neighbourhood offices.
