We operate residents-only parking schemes in some areas of Oakham and Uppingham. You can find out which areas the schemes cover and how to apply for a permit in this guide.
The permit will let you park in any spaces reserved for permit holders in the zone you have a valid permit for. These spaces are signed.
To apply for a permit, you must:
- be a full-time, permanent resident at an address included in a scheme
- have insufficient off-street parking for the vehicles registered to your address - for example you have three cars registered, but off-street parking for only two
Your vehicle must not weigh more than 3,500 kilograms (gross vehicle weight).
We will not issue a permit if you've got a drive or garage that you're using for anything other than parking a vehicle. If your garage is smaller than 2.4 metres by 4.8 metres, this may not be considered when you apply.
The permit scheme is not open to businesses.
You can find the administration charge for permits on the relevant permit page in this guide.
