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 to enable residents to park near their homes. If you live in a street or operate a business within the residents parking scheme area, you'll be entitled to apply for a residents parking scheme permit.

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

Streets within the residents parking scheme may have markings on the road and all have signs. The signs show the zone in which the street is included and the zone's hours of operation. Any vehicle may be parked for any length of time outside of the hours of operation.

Residents parking permits will have the registration number of the vehicle printed on the permit; you will therefore 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.


Complete the relevant application form. Forms are available from the downloads below or from Parking Services. Explanatory notes can also be downloaded that give further information on each type of permit.

You'll need to provide proof of residence/business, i.e. a utility bill, bank statement etc. (less than 3 months old), and your vehicle registration document(s) or insurance document(s). If the vehicle belongs to your employer and you're unable to obtain the registration/insurance document, an official letter should be obtained from the employer stating that you use the vehicle(s) concerned.
