You are here :
Resident permits with one vehicle on them are issued electronically. Permits with more than one vehicle on them are issued as paper permits.
You should renew or apply for your permit online using My eAccount. This allows you to manage all of your council accounts in one place. If you haven’t already, register today as it only takes a minute and it’ll save you time in the future. Log in or register on My eAccount here and click on the My Parking box.
If you have a resident parking permit you can also use the resident roamer scheme between 11am and 3pm in resident and resident/shared use bays across Islington. The scheme does not apply in any other bays, on yellow lines, or when extended matchday hours are in force. The location of resident bays in Islington can be viewed using our Interactive Map.
If you want to renew an existing resident permit you need to use our online form. You also need to read our terms and conditions before you do.
You will need the account number from your permit renewal reminder letter and your vehicle registration number to be able to complete your application. The cost of your permit depends on either the CO2 emission or the engine size of your vehicle(s). The online form will automatically check the DVLA CO2 details for your vehicle registration number and calculate the correct price of your permit.
Most people who live in Islington can apply for a parking permit. However all new housing developments are designated 'permit free'. This means that residents of these developments cannot have a permit to allow parking on the public highway, although residents can still buy visitor vouchers. If you are not sure if you live in one of these developments please call us on 020 7527 2000 or view this list of permit free properties.
Residents living on council housing estates are entitled to purchase permits for parking on-street in their local CPZ, however these permits are not valid in estate car parks. If you require an estate permit you can purchase one from the Housing area of this website.
When you first apply you will need to prove you are a resident and that you own your vehicle by sending us some documents. You need to do this immediately; if we do not receive your documents within three days your permit will be suspended and there will be an administrative fee for making the permit live again.
If you want a permit for a scooter or motorcycle please see further down this page.
Please note the terms and conditions for the issue and use of a permit.
The cost of your permit depends on either the CO2 emission or the engine size of your vehicle(s). If your vehicle was registered on or after 1 January 2001 the online form will source the CO2 emission from the DVLA. For older vehicles you will need to know your engine capacity. This can be found on your vehicle registration document (V5).
The table below shows the cost of a vehicle permit (see further below for the cost of motorcycle and scooter permits).
The surcharge below will also be applied to diesel fuelled vehicles (excluding those with exemptions)
Each applicant can apply for one permit with up to three vehicles on it. Please note:

If you currently have a permit and have changed your vehicle you need swap the vehicles over by printing off and completing this application form.
Resident permits with one vehicle on them are issued electronically. Permits with more than one vehicle on them are issued as paper permits. You will need to complete and return the application form with the paper permit if you have one. This should be posted to: Parking Permit Team, PO Box 72951, London N7 1DL. If you do not have a paper permit you can email the application form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
From time to time, residents with a parking permit may need to park a courtesy or hire car whilst their own car is being serviced. There is no additional charge for this but you will need to visit the Customer Centre at 222 Upper Street who will issue a paper permit for the replacement vehicle. If a physical permit is used in the vehicle that is off the road (as opposed to a virtual e-permit), it must be returned, a new permit with both vehicle registrations will then be issued. Please note: you need to provide a copy of the hire agreement documentation in order to add the vehicle to your permit.
