Renew your residents' or priority parking permit

Sunday parking restrictions will be introduced in Zones 1 to 4.  We will shortly be making changes to parking places and signs to include the Sunday parking times.  However, controls will not start right away.  The start of Sunday controls will be confirmed later.  Restrictions will remain Monday to Saturday in Zones 1 to 4 for time being.  For more information please visit

You can no longer renew your residents' or priority parking permit at the Drum Brae Hub. 

You can renew and manage your residents' parking permit online with our new service, NSL Apply. Please note you can only renew your application four weeks before your permit is due to expire. The option to renew will only appear in your account at that point.

You should have received an email to activate your account on our new system. Once you have received your NSL Apply activation email, you can renew your parking permit online.

Apply for, renew or manage your parking permit

Our online service will calculate your permit price for you. A renewal is for the same vehicle and starts the day after the expiry date of your current permit. If there is a gap between the expiry of your old permit and the start of your new permit you will need to make a new application.

Once you have logged into your account and clicked renew, you will be returned to the NSL Apply home page and your permit will show as “pending renewal”. Your renewal needs to be approved by us and this may take a few days. Once approved, you will receive an email asking you to log into your account to make payment.

At this time, the only payment option we can accept is to pay online after the application is approved. Paying via a registered card is currently not available. We would recommend that you do not register your card until this option has been turned on.

If you have any problems activating your account or renewing your permit, please contact us for assistance and we will arrange a suitable time to help you with your enquiry.
