Most people who live in Islington can apply for a parking permit. Except residents who live in a permit-free property. Check the list to see if your address is permit-free.
The cost of the permit depends on whether you have a car/van or motorbike/scooter. You can find out how much your permit will cost before applying.
There are restrictions on the height and length of vehicles that may mean we will not issue a permit.
For those and other issuing criteria, please note the terms and conditions for the issue and use of a permit.
Unless you have a multiple vehicle permit, you will not receive a paper permit. Most permits are now e-permits, and there is no requirement to display a physical permit.
Please make a note of the date of your permit expiry. Should you wish to ensure that you receive a reminder to renew your permit, you should update your My e-Account to allow reminders to be delivered to your email address.
