About the permits
In certain areas of the city, local residents are required to use a permit to enable them to park near their homes.
- A resident permit is issued for one vehicle only, and can only be used in that vehicle.
Residents can also apply for a visitor permit, which is issued to a specific address and can be used by any vehicle with the residents consent, check each scheme as not all allow visitors permits.
Please note: Unfortunately there is no budget available for new resident parking schemes: all available funds will be used for road maintenance.
The following areas within Manchester have been designated resident parking zones:
- City Centre
- Fouracres Road - Wythenshawe
- Grove Village
- Loxford Court - Hulme
Resident parking terms and conditions apply when using permits, which vary from scheme to scheme. Some schemes also carry a charge.
Please make sure you have read these conditions before applying for a permit or renewing/replacing an existing one.
Permits must always be displayed when the vehicle occupies a parking place during the restricted hours, failure to display a permit may result in a parking ticket being issued.
Blue badge holders are permitted to park on any of the roads currently under a residents' parking scheme as long as they operate under the blue badge guidelines.
