Delays in processing permit applications

Love Lane business parking permits

About the scheme

The parking permit scheme is for businesses located within the Love Lane area and operates Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm.

The scheme is a Permitted Parking Area which means that there are no marked out bays except for pay and display bays.

Non permit holder vehicles may park in the area for up to 2 hours between 8am and 6pm, however, if a valid permit is displayed then the vehicle may park all day. Permits do not allow parking in the pay and display bays.

A permit does not guarantee availability of a parking space.

The remainder of the area will be marked by waiting restrictions (single or double yellow lines, prohibiting waiting) except where there are pay and display bays. Cars are not allowed to park on waiting restrictions during their operational times. Further details about the scheme is provided with the permit.

Am I eligible?

Your business must be located within the Love Lane area and be registered with a Business Rates account number. We will verify these details before we process your application for a permit. Each business may apply for up to 10 parking permits which cost £50 each.
