New parking permits for staff to be trialled from 1 September 2020
Mon, 17 Aug 2020

A new staff parking permit system will be trialled for 12 months to assist with flexible working arrangements.

The council will shortly be able to offer staff who currently have a permit the opportunity to purchase a virtual monthly parking permit which is valid in a number of off-street and on-street long-stay car parks.  

The monthly permit is ideal for staff who work at council premises all week, and will replace the previous annual permit. 

This will be valid in a choice of car parks within the same town for seven days a week and the cost will depend on which car parks are to be used by the individual member of staff.

In addition, as a number of current permit holders may now be working from home or from other locations for part of the week, a flexible permit is being trialled for 12 months and is aimed at staff who work in this way. 

These are single-use daily permits available for use from Monday to Friday only.  The cost is £3 per day and will be purchased online in bundles of 20 with a limit of one bundle per month.

Both of these permits are virtual permits and are available to current permit holders via a portal on MiPermit (an external website) where staff will be required to create an account. 

Full details of the car parks available for use with these permits, their cost, the terms and conditions, and how to apply for them are available on the staff parking permits page.

The new permits are to come into operation on Tuesday, 1 September 2020.

 Staff who currently have a paper permit will be able to use this until Monday, 31 August 2020, even if the permit is displaying an expired date.
