Car Park Permits

Apply, buy or renew yearly or half yearly car park permits in Bournemouth. Manage permits though your account on our simple and easy to use online system.

To apply, renew or pay for a virtual yearly or half yearly parking permit

Log in to our online permit system

If this is the first time you've used the system, you'll be asked to create an account.    

Once your account is set up, you can apply and pay for your permit or change your registration number.

Using this system means you no longer receive a physical permit, instead you have a virtual permit. Our staff use their handheld devices to log in to the system and check if people have paid for parking. 

Permit rules  

  • Permits can be shared between two vehicles. However, you can't use the permit on two vehicles at the same time. You are responsible for updating your account to let us know which vehicle you want to use. (except Richmond Gardens MSCP & Avenue Road MSCP where you can only have one vehicle per permit).

  • Enter your car registration details carefully. Make sure you enter the correct registration number. Take care when entering 0 (zero) and O (the letter). Mistakes may result in the issue of a Penalty Charge Notice. 

  • If you apply for or use a permit fraudulently, the permit will be cancelled and no refund issued. 

  • Make sure you read the full terms and conditions for your chosen car park. 

To add or change the registration number on a visitors permit

  • log onto your permit account
  • find the visitors permit and select it
  • then select the vehicles tab. 

Add the vehicle registration number you want to be active, by clicking on the pencil icon, which is the edit button, enter the registration number, then click save. Every time you want to add a new car on the permit, repeat this process. 

Please check there is a tick next to the vehicle registration you want to be active.

Remember, only one vehicle can be active at a time.
