New and replacement permits have not been issued during the coronavirus lockdown. If your permit has expired you should continue to display the permit for the time being.
Expired permits will still be honoured whilst applications and renewals are processed. The free coronavirus parking period will be taken into account when issuing permits.
As lockdown measures ease, we expect vehicles on the roads to increase from July onwards. We've taken the decision to restart parking enforcement in all areas of the borough. This will help keep locations safe and help the management of parking spaces.
Initially, an advisory notice may be placed on your windscreen if your permit has expired or if you do not have one displayed whilst parked in a residential area. This is not a fine. At this point you should apply for a permit, if you have not already done so. Fines may be issued on further visits.

1. How to apply
Resident parking schemes
Resident parking schemes are currently under review. Any new schemes will not be progressed until the review is complete.
A Resident Parking Scheme aims to make parking easier for homeowners and tenants who don't have driveways and are forced to park on the road.
Current schemes and details about where residents are entitled to park can be found in the eligible streets list (PDF 208Kb).
If you wish to apply for a permit, contact the appropriate department as indicated in the eligible streets list. The contact details for the relevant departments are listed below:
- Stockport libraries
- Stockport Tourist Information Centre
- The Parking team
- Legal services – for Spring Gardens and Victoria Avenue, Hazel Grove only – contact:
Stockport Legal Services
You must provide proof of vehicle ownership and residency with your application. If you're new to the area and do not yet have proof of residency, then contact the Parking team for further information.
Residents who are Blue Badge holders are eligible to apply for a single residents permit, for their own (registered) vehicle, free of charge.
To request an application form or for any other enquiries, please contact the Parking team.
