Our planning system is undergoing essential maintenance from 3pm on Friday, April 29 until Thursday, May 5 and therefore it will not be possible to view applications online. More details.

Residents' parking

Residents' parking schemes are designed to give residents access to parking which is close to their homes or premises, while deterring vehicles from outside the area from parking and causing congestion.

These schemes do not reserve places exclusively for each permit holder, but permit holders can park in any of the streets within their designated scheme area (zone) in the resident parking bays provided.


How to apply to the residents' parking scheme

Leicestershire County Council (LCC) is responsible for all of the residents' parking schemes in Leicestershire. Applications must be made to LCC by post; permits will be sent to you in roughly five working days.

Please visit the LCC Residents' Parking pages for all matters relating to the schemes, where you will find everything you need including:

  • operation
  • application
  • renewals 
  • visitor's permits

Please be aware that parking restrictions remain in force 365 days a year, including Bank Holidays, unless the adjacent parking signage states otherwise.

Please always check the parking signage and road markings at the location where you wish to park before parking there.
