Parking permit zones

A Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) runs in the city centre. To park on street within the zone you need to either pay and display or hold a valid parking permit. Yellow lines are provided for loading or to prevent unsafe parking.

You can use our address search or interactive parking map to find the extent of the CPZ and Priority Parking Areas in Edinburgh. In Priority Parking areas only the permit holders' places are marked out and there are no further controls on the rest of the kerbside space.

To be eligible for a Residents Permit you must reside in a property within a Controlled Parking Zone or Priority Parking Area.
