Parking permits

A resident parking scheme aims to make parking easier for homeowners and tenants who do not have driveways and are forced to park on the road.

Applying for a permit

Current schemes and details about where residents are allowed to park can be found in the eligible streets list.

You must provide proof of vehicle ownership and residency with your application.

If applicable to your scheme, you can request a maximum of 10 scratch cards for £1 each. You'll need to request a scratch card at least 1 week before you need to use them.

You can email parking@stockport.gov.uk if:

  • you want to apply for a permit
  • you have any queries about a permit
  • you're new to the area and do not yet have proof of residency
  • you need to make changes to an existing permit
  • you want to request a scratch card

If you have a Blue Badge you can apply for 1 free resident permit per household for your registered vehicle. You’ll need to provide a copy of your valid Blue Badge with your application.

If you're applying for a residents on-street permit on Victoria Avenue in Hazel Grove you can email zoe.allan@stockport.gov.uk.

Fees and charges

Resident and visitor permits are £41.50.

Permits for residents with a Band A Leisure Key are £20.75.

Renewing your permit

All permits must be renewed annually.

We'll send you a permit renewal reminder a month before your permit is due to expire. You'll need to evidence that you are still a resident at the property to renew your permit.
