Obtaining a Residents Permit
To obtain a Residents' Permit you must be resident in the
property for which you are applying for the permit. Permits
are not issued to owners of properties who are not actually
residing in them e.g. they are renting the property out. You should
bring the following documents to the Customer service desk at
the Cornwallis entrance of the Town Hall: All
residential properties are entitled to 2 annual permits per
property (3 permits for properties on Barrow Island) together
with 60 visitor permits per annum. For a visitor permit you
must provided proof of residency in the form of either a Council
tax bill or tenancy agreement and the vehicle registration number
of the vehicle for which a visitor permit is required. The
visitor permits can be obtained in advance or on the day on
which they are required.
- Your current Council Tax Bill or Tenancy Agreement (these are
used to prove your domestic occupancy of the property).
- The Registration Document of the vehicle for which you want the
Permit (the vehicle must be registered at the address on your
Council Tax Bill).
These guidelines are only a brief description of the
requirements that must be met to obtain a Permit. For further
