Review the terms and conditions


Whether you’re a paid or unpaid carer we’re proposing to introduce permits which aim to make it easier for you to park.

There are two different types of permits being proposed:

  • Professional Carers permit – for those employed by an organisation or agency and who make multiple visits in a day
  • Personal Carers permits – for those caring for family or friends on an informal basis. This would apply even if you are in receipt of any type of carers allowance.

EUP renewals for 2023

These should all now be complete. We will contact you again when your permit is due for expiry.
