Resident Parking Permits

You must submit a signed application form and the supporting documents for each application - both for first time applications and renewals.

We are in the process of auditing all permits to make sure residents are still eligible  and that permits are not used instead of off-street parking.

A permit may be withdrawn if we find that a resident is no longer eligible for a permit because either:

  • documentation has not been provided, or is out of date
  • off-street parking is not being used for parking

Inner Oakham Zones D, L, N & S, & Uppingham Zone residents parking permits

Who qualifies for a residents permit?

Residents of Oakham D, L, N & S Zones and Uppingham who live within the designated residents parking permit areas, do not have off-street parking available to them and who keep and use a car or a van (not exceeding 3500 kilograms gross vehicle weight) on a full-time permanent basis will normally qualify for a permit. The permit scheme is not open to businesses.

How many permits can I have?

  • Properties in Oakham and Uppingham can have 2 parking permits.
Please note:

The eligibility criteria will have to be met for each permit issued.

The property would need to be within the areas which are within the resident permit schemes. Refer to street list on each form.

If a property has private spaces, the amount of spaces available will influence the amount of permits granted. Permits will not be issued if a drive or garage space is being occupied by other things than vehicles. If a garage is smaller than 2.4m x 4.8m, the Council will investigate if it could be not considered.

All applications are considered according to the numbered criteria on the top of the permit application forms - please refer to this.

Note for disabled persons badge (blue badge) holders   

If you have a disabled persons blue badge you can park in the residents/dual use bays for as as long as you wish.

What the permit allows you to do
