On Street CPZ Bays and charges

On street parking is available within marked bays. There are various types of parking bays for different users. Please see below the different types of bays available and the uses of these bays.

Types of bays:

Resident/Pay-and-Display Bays

In these bays you may park while displaying a Resident Permit, a pay-and-display ticket, a Visitor Voucher or a Disabled Badge.

Permit Only Bays

In a few areas pay-and-display tickets cannot be purchased and parking is restricted to holders of permits, Visitor Vouchers or Disabled Badges only.

Special Bays

There are a variety of bays reserved for specific road users, such as Orange/Blue Badge Holders, motorcycles, buses/coaches, and taxis and should only be used by the appropriate user.

(Misuse of a specific parking bay may result in the issue of a PCN to your vehicle)
