Make a change to your resident parking permit

This guide explains how to change the name, address or vehicle details for your resident parking permit.

We will need to see proofs before we can process any changes. You can upload the relevant proof online.

Before you start

What happens next

If we need to send you a new permit you should receive this by post within seven working days. If you have not received your permit after this time, you can contact us on 020 8891 1411 during office hours, or email parkingpermits@richmond.gov.uk. If we do not need to send you a new permit, you can continue to use your existing permit as normal, and we will update our records electronically.

Temporary dispensation

You will be given a temporary parking dispensation if you change your details online and have:

  • moved to an address within another Community Parking Zone (CPZ); or
  • changed your vehicle.

This will be for up to 7 days and will allow us time to deliver your new permit. This will be applied to your vehicle electronically, and will begin from 11am on the first working day, following the submission of your request.

If you make your request by post or in person, there is no temporary dispensation applied to your vehicle.

When you get your new permit

Each new permit will be issued with a protective cover. This should be affixed to the inside of your windscreen on the passenger side. The permit must always be displayed so that it is visible. Failure to do so could result in a Penalty Charge Notice.

Before using your new permit ensure you have checked where you can park.
