Residents parking scheme

Residents parking schemes are in operation in most of the residential areas in and around Middlesbrough town centre.

The schemes are designed to keep residential streets clear from commuter and shopper's vehicles, allowing residents to park near their homes and business owners to park near their premises. If you live in a street, operate a business, or own a property, within the residents parking scheme area, you'll be entitled to apply for a residents parking scheme permit. There are 4 types of residents parking scheme permits: resident, business, landlord, and visitor permits.

The residents parking scheme is divided into parking zones. There are currently twelve residents parking zones in Middlesbrough: Zones A, B, C, D, E, G, H, J, K, L, P, and U.

Streets within the residents parking scheme all have signs, and may also have markings on the road. The signs show which zone the street is in, and the zone's hours of operation. Any vehicle has the right to park for any length of time if it's outside of the zone's hours of operation.

Resident's permit

Residents parking permits will have the registration number of the vehicle printed on the permit. You'll need to apply for a permit for each vehicle that you own/wish to park in the zone. Permits will also have the zone in which the permit is valid printed on them; permits are not transferable between zones. Permits are renewed each year before the permit expiry date (printed on the permit), and are sent out in the post.

To find out more, please read the resident's permit explanatory notes.

Business permit

Businesses may apply for a maximum of two parking permits. Business permits will have the registration number of the vehicle printed on the permit, and up to three vehicles are allowed per permit, so the permit can be swapped between vehicles if needed. Permits will also have the zone in which the permit is valid printed on them. Permits are not transferable between zones.

Permits are renewed each year before the permit expiry date (printed on the permit), and are sent out in the post.

To find out more, please read the business permit explanatory notes.

Landlord permit

Landlords may apply for a maximum of one parking permit. Landlord permits will have the registration number of the vehicle printed on the permit, and up to three vehicles are allowed per permit, so the permit can be swapped between vehicles if needed. Permits will also have the zone in which the permit is valid printed on them. Permits are not transferable between zones.

Permits are renewed each year before the permit expiry date (printed on the permit), and are sent out in the post.

To find out more, please read the landlord permit explanatory notes.

Visitor's permit

Residential properties in the zones are automatically issued with two generic visitor's permits per year, which can be used by any visitor (including carers, and tradespeople carrying out work in properties).

It is the resident's responsibility to make sure visitor permits are returned to them by the visitor when they leave. There will be a charge for any lost permits, and the lost permit will be cancelled and no longer valid for use.

To find out more, please read the visitor's permit explanatory notes.

Have you changed your vehicle?

If you already have a residents parking scheme permit (not a visitor permit) and you've changed your vehicle, you can apply for a new permit using the change of vehicle online application form.

Please do not use the 'new resident permit', 'new business permit', or 'new landlord permit' forms. These are only to be used by residents who do not already have a permit.

How to apply

To apply for a permit you'll need to complete the relevant application form and upload your documentation.

You'll need to provide proof of residence, business, or property ownership (for example, a utility bill, bank statement etc. which is less than 3 months old), and your vehicle registration document(s) or insurance documents. If the vehicle belongs to your employer and you don't have the registration or insurance documents, your employer should give you an official letter stating that you use the vehicle(s) concerned.

Residents may apply for a parking permit online by completing the online application form below and uploading their documentation. Alternatively, printable application forms are also available below.
