Parking permits and visitors vouchers
To apply for any type of parking permit, you will need to create a permit account through the Bromley permit portal.
We operate a number of permit parking schemes in the borough to allow parking within restricted zones or roads. Each scheme covers a carefully defined area which may be part of a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ).
Permits may be available to businesses and residents depending upon location. Visitors' vouchers (scratch cards) may also be available to allow visitors to park in a designated permit zone on a specific day.
The cost of a permit varies depending upon the hours of operation and the extent of enforcement required. Prices start from £50 per vehicle per annum. Every vehicle in a household within a CPZ would need a permit to park in the permit bays within the zone.
The council is required by law to protect the public funds it administers. It may share information provided to it with other bodies responsible for; auditing, or administering public funds, or where undertaking a public function, in order to prevent and detect fraud.
We no longer issues paper parking permits - instead approved applications result in electronic vehicle cover from the date specified. Civil Enforcement Officers on patrol can access details of the permit for verification purposes through their handheld computers. All other terms and conditions that apply to each permit type remain unchanged.
Visitor vouchers are not included in the e-permit scheme – paper vouchers continue to be issued and should be validated in the normal way by scratching off the correct day, date and month. The voucher must then be displayed on the dashboard of the vehicle, so that the details are visible from the outside.
The vouchers are valid for one day only and for use only in the zone applied for.
Blue Badge permit for the Civic Centre car park
Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology is being introduced in the Civic Centre car park in Bromley. Blue Badge holders should register now for their entitlement to free and unlimited parking in this facility.
To register, the badge holder is required to create a permit account and apply for a Blue Badge permit. This is a virtual permit which means that only the Blue Badge is required to be displayed when the car park changes over to ANPR. The permit is required to allow free exit – it is identified through the badge holder's vehicle number plate by a camera at the exit barrier.
Blue Badge holders can add up to three vehicles to their account, but if they alternate between these vehicles, before entering the car park each time they visit, they must ensure the correct vehicle has been selected through their account.
Apply, renew or check for your permit zone
When making your application, please ensure your vehicle registration is entered correctly and be careful not to mix up the letters ‘I’ and ‘O’ with the numbers ‘1’ and ‘0’.
Change of vehicle
You can provide details of a change of your vehicle and if you are a residential permit holder, submit your V5C (vehicle registration document). If you have not yet received the V5C, you can submit the bill of sale and we will arrange temporary cover in the meantime. As soon as your V5C arrives, you can submit it the same way.
If you are a business permit holder, you need only to provide your new vehicle registration. We will arrange for your new vehicle details and registration to be added to your permit account and covered from the date requested.
