Delays in processing permit applications

We have a large backlog of parking permit applications. If you have already applied to renew your permit and it expired in March 2020 or after, please continue to use it until you get your replacement. New applications will be processed as soon as possible.

Business permits in parking scheme zones

Who are they for?

If your business is located within a parking scheme zone, you may be able to apply for a business parking permit.

The zones covered include:

  • Football match parking zones.
  • Outer controlled parking zones (not valid for use in residents bays).
  • Kensington Fields, Broad Green, Fazakerley ¬†and Thingwall permitted parking areas (landlords and businesses).

Please view the list of parking scheme zones on our residents parking permits page to make sure your street is within the scheme before you apply. Please note that this list does not imply a business permit is valid for use in any particular street.

Note: For parking permits in the Baltic Triangle area, please see the Baltic Triangle permit page.
