Buy or renew a resident parking permit

For Islington residents who want to park by their home

Most people who live in Islington can apply for a parking permit. Except residents who live in a permit-free property. Check 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.

Buy a new resident permit

If you have not bought a parking permit before, we will need:

One proof of address. We can accept:

  • Bills: Current council tax bill or a gas, water, electricity or landline phone bill dated within the last 3 months.
  • Driving licence
  • Tenancy agreement
  • Department for Work and Pensions letter dated within the last 6 months


one proof of vehicle ownership. We can accept:

  • Car Insurance schedule document
  • Registration document (V5)
  • Hire agreement

You will be asked to email a good quality copy of your documents at the end of the process. Make sure when you scan or take a photo of your documents they can be clearly read and show all parts of the document. Once you have purchased the permit it will be live immediately and you'll have 10 working days to submit the required documents. If we do not receive the documents by the date given your permit will be suspended or cancelled.
