Parking permits - residential, visitors and market traders

Employee and business parking permits

Costs of parking permits

1 month: £52
3 months: £129
12 months: £386

Where you can park

Parking for permit holders is available Monday to Friday in designated car parks.

Having an employee/business permit does not guarantee you a parking space and vehicles must be parked in marked parking bays.

How to apply

Parking sessions are now virtual, meaning that you no longer need to display a permit in your vehicle. To apply for, or renew a parking session visit Permit Smarti (link opens in new window) and select the employee or business parking session. You will need to send proof of eligibility in the form of a letter on headed paper from your employer, stating that you are an employee. This can be either uploaded to the Permit Smarti app or sent in to us at parking@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk.

Apply for your parking permit online

Once we have accepted your application, you can log back on to purchase and start your parking session.

Apply by post
