Wickham Square - Resident Off-Street Permits

Residents of qualifying properties within Wickham Square, Dairymoor and Bridge Street may make an application for the purchase of Resident Permits and visitor scratchcard permits for use within Wickham Square car park. Permits will allow parking within Wickham Square car park without the need for daily payment at the ticket machine and will enable the holder to stay beyond the stated daily short-stay limit. Space is not guaranteed in Wickham Square car park.


A Resident Off-Street Permit is specific to the resident's own vehicle. It displays the vehicle registration mark and can only be used for parking this vehicle. Within a 12 month period, a maximum of 3 Resident Off-Street Permits may be issued in relation to any qualifying property.

Visitor Scratchcard Permits are for one day use on a particular day and for a vehicle specified by the user. Within a 12 month period, Residents of qualifying properties may apply for up to 30 Visitor Scratchcard Permits (sold in sets of 10).

The entitlement relates to the property and not the individual, so in the case of shared properties, you may need to discuss permit requirements with fellow occupiers.


Permits are valid for 12 months and are priced as follows:
•First and second Resident Permit £10 each
•Third Resident Permit £30
•Set of 10 Visitor Scratchcard Permits £5 per set
