London Borough of Croydon

Coronavirus - As lockdown eases, parking enforcement is being gradually reintroduced from Tuesday 26 May 2020. Pay and display machines are being reactivated and payments accepted from Tuesday 26 May. Parking permit applications are starting to be processed from Tuesday 26 May

Parking for health and social care workers

Health and social care workers can park for free in any council-run on street or off street bays. They should contact their employer who will be able to apply for dispensation on their behalf.
 

Who can apply

To apply for a permit you must be:

  • a permanent resident at an address within Croydon
  • on the electoral register or council tax record

What you need to apply

Apply and pay for your permit online and we will send you the permit within 5 working days.

To apply for a permit you will need:

  • a photo or scanned copy of page 2 of your V5C registration showing your vehicle make, model, engine size & emissions OR a copy of the details from the online vehicle enquiry service
  • credit or debit card

Your parking permit is only valid when you receive and display your permit. Failure to display may result in a penalty charge notice.

Having a permit does not guarantee a parking space on your road. It gives you the option to park in a valid space anywhere within the permit zone.
