Apply for a business parking permit (North Kew Event Zone only)

You can apply for two free permits for your business, if it is within the North Kew event Controlled Parking Zone, for use during events only.

Before you start

This information is for new applications and renewals.

We offer additional guidance if you wish to:

Permits are free of charge for businesses within the North Kew event zone. A permit is only required on specific event days as signposted on the zone entry signs. A list of these days can be found on our North Kew event days timetable.

Permits are limited to a maximum of two per business (except when renewing permits immediately before expiry of an existing permit) and are valid for 12 months.

Should your application be refused we will let you know why, and your application and any proofs will also be securely deleted for your protection.

Business permits are issued to provide businesses with a parking facility, which otherwise would not exist. Abuse of this provision may lead to the withdrawal of any permits issued and the loss of the facility to obtain further permits.
