About resident parking permits

Resident parking permit

If you have a current paper resident parking permit, please wait until it expires before applying for a new virtual permit.  

Applying for a virtual permit means you won’t have to print a permit at home or wait for us to send it to you. The council’s civil enforcement officers (CEOs) will be able to scan your vehicle’s number plate and know if you have a valid permit to park.

Click the button below to create an online parking account and then follow the instructions to buy your virtual permit. Click to apply for a ‘Resident Permit’, unless you live in the Tottenham Event Day CPZ where you should click to apply for a ‘Resident Event Day Permit’.

If you’re registered to vote or pay council tax, you won’t have to supply any proof of residency when you apply for, or renew, a resident parking permit.  

If you’re not registered to vote or pay council tax, or if the automatic validation is not successful, you must provide one of the following: 

  • a signed assured shorthold tenancy agreement, or the letter of completion from your solicitor in which they confirm the property is for your residency only
  • a letter from HM Revenues or Department of Work and Pensions, signed and recently dated, showing your address
  • a signed housing association or council tenancy agreement
  • a driving licence photo card showing your address within the CPZ

You will also need to upload proof you’re the registered keeper or sole user of the vehicle named on the permit. Please supply one of the following:

  • a vehicle registration document (DVLA V5C) in your name, also known as a log book
  • a new keeper’s slip (V5C/2) plus a bill of sale on headed company paper 
  • confirmation of your vehicle registration details plus a bill of sale on headed company paper 
  • a lease agreement
  • a company car arrangement on headed letter paper 

Once your application is approved you will be able to use your virtual permit straight away. 

You will also be able to renew and make changes to your permit at any time within your online parking account.

As part of our terms and conditions, if you make a fraudulent application your permit or permit application will be cancelled and you will not be refunded.

How to make changes to your virtual permit

You can also make changes to your permit in your online parking account.

Update your contact details

You can update your email address or phone number within your personal details in your permit account.

Change of vehicle

You can apply to change the vehicle or the vehicle’s license plate in your online permit account. This is also known as the number plate or vehicle registration mark (VRM). Do so by viewing the current permit within your online permit account, and selecting the appropriate option.  

You will need to upload one of the following:

  • a vehicle registration document (DVLA V5C) in your name, also known as a log book
  • a new keeper’s slip (V5C/2) plus a bill of sale on headed company paper 
  • confirmation of your vehicle registration details plus a bill of sale on headed company paper 
  • a lease agreement
  • a company car arrangement on headed letter paper 

If the only change is the VRM, please provide a scanned copy of the certificate of entitlement (V750) provided from DVLA.  

There will be an administration charge to pay to change the permit.

If the new vehicle falls into a different emission band (see the permit price list) we will issue you with a pro rata refund, or you will be required to make an additional payment. 

Change of address

If you are moving home within your CPZ, or to another Haringey CPZ, you can request your account and permit to be changed via your online permit account.  

Please note – editing your address in ‘Personal Details’ in your online permit account does not change the address or CPZ your permit is valid for.

In order to have your account and permits changed to your new address on the right date, login to your online permit account, then:

  • Click to ‘View’ the permit you want to move
  • Click ‘Contact us about this permit’
  • Complete the details of your request – including the date you wish the change to be made, and upload residency proofs for your new address
  • Once your request is submitted, we’ll amend your permit

In order for the changes to be made, you must make your request at least 5 working days in advance of your moving date.

You must provide one of the following: 

  • a signed assured shorthold tenancy agreement, or the letter of completion from your solicitor in which they confirm the property is for your residency only
  • a letter from HM Revenues or Department of Work and Pensions, signed and recently dated, showing your address
  • a signed housing association or council tenancy agreement
  • a driving licence photo card showing your address within the CPZ

If you’ve moved outside a Haringey CPZ, please see refunds below.
