Leicestershire County Council is responsible for the implementation and administration of all Residents' Parking Schemes in Leicestershire. As from 1st June 2010 permits are no longer available from Charnwood Borough Council and there is no Residents' Parking service from this office.
All applications for Residents' Parking permits, Visitor's permits and Changes of Vehicle need to be made to Leicestershire County Council by post, who aim to despatch the permits within 5 working days.
Use one of the links below to find out more:
- How to apply (please note there is no facility to do this on-line or face-to-face)
In the same way as any other illegal parking – by phoning the 08458 450 450 number
Parking tickets will be £60, reduced to £30 if paid within 14 days.
The charge could rise to £95 plus debt collection costs if payment is not made.
Visit the Council's website for details about paying your parking ticket and the appeals process for challenging your parking ticket.
Hopefully an improved amount of availability (but no additional spaces):
Better operation (enforcement) of designated badge-holder bays, and less illegal parking on double yellow lines should free-up the areas where badge holders can park.
Parking Attendants are able to issue PCNs to vehicles parked where a restriction applies to the stretch of road. (eg parked behind a double yellow line). Where there are no restrictions, we will refer these incidents to the police periodically. Police discretion will apply as to level of action.
8 am till 6 pm Monday to Friday. Payments can be made 24 hours through an automated service.
All matters relating to the Resident's Parking Scheme are dealt with by Leicestershire County Concil. For information and advice visit their Residents' Parking pages where you will find realted information and applications forms including the Vehicle Change Form which you will need to complete and return to them.
