Parking permits, restrictions and zones

In an order to make printing of permit application forms easier and cheaper we have removed all colour shading and highlighting. They are now in black and white. Please take care when completing any form and ensure that you have supplied the necessary information.

Residents of a controlled zone can apply for all council parking permits at an appropriate library or customer service centre (CSC) or by downloading the appropriate application form and sending it along with the copies of the necessary documents and payment to the address at the bottom of the page.

This applies to residents' parking permits, scratch cards for visitors who are staying at a household where a resident's permit is required.

We are currently transferring responsibility for permits to libraries and away from customer service centres. At present the following libraries can issue permits with others to follow -

  • Avenues Library
  • Bransholme Library
  • Central Library
  • Fred Moore Library
  • Greenwood Library
  • Ings Library
  • Western Library

Parking permits

The cost of parking permit is to increase from the Monday 1 June 2015 to £20 for some Controlled Parking Zones (CPZ).  Some CPZs have been in place for many years and it may be that changes to parking practices have changed over the years.  It is also recognised that support for a CPZ may be affected by the increase in cost.

As a result, we are consulting with the residents of each controlled parking zone to see if they believe that their zone should remain in place. Once the consultation process for each CPZ has been completed a report will be presented to the Area Committee responsible who will decide whether or not to remove or retain the CPZ.

The cost of a permit will not increase until the decision has been made by the relevant Area Committee. This will mean that for a short period there will be a two tier permit charge with CPZs that have yet to be consulted paying at the lower rate.

The cost of a day permit (scratch card) is to increase to 75p for all CPZs regardless of whether or not the particular CPZ has yet to be consulted.

The table indicates the level of permit charge within each zone and will be updated as the situation alters.

We provide three types of residents’ parking exemption permits -

1. Two hour zone

To prevent congestion by all day parking around the city centre and in other high demand locations, there are parking zones limited to two hours. If you live in one of these zones or have a business in one of these zones you may apply for exemption from the restrictions by obtaining a residents exemption permit or business resident permit (badge) and displaying it in your car.

Residents parking permits

The resident parking permit exemption application form is available to download below -

  • a cheque or postal order (made payable to 'Hull City Council') for the permit cost.

Limited exemption for visitors is also available by purchasing scratch cards. Up to 10 cards may be purchased each month for use by visitors and trades people and act as a parking permit for one day. Proof of residency is required when purchasing a scratch card. The cost of a scratch card is currently 75p.

Business parking permit

Currently you can apply for two business permits in any controlled parking zone other than the city centre. This exemption may be appropriate if parking space becomes too congested.

  • not be living at the business (if you do live at the premises, you may be entitled to a household permit)

The permit can be used by any member of staff or visitor who has to use their vehicle for the business. A maximum of two permits will be issued per property, and no visitor permits (scratch cards) are allowed.

Businesses that do not have logos on their vehicle should write to Streetscene Parking detailing their business needs in order that their applications can be assessed.

A PEP must be applied for in advance of when it is required by the business or trade person who is using it, not the resident of the property.

  • for outside the city centre the cost will be £15 per week or £50 per month

Customers may have previously been granted PEPs for these streets however these are no longer permitted.


Controlled parking

There are many areas in the city where parking is restricted - examples are given below.  Please contact us if you require more information.

I want to know the parking charges for car parks in Hull


On-street parking 

On-street city centre parking is available between the hours of 8.30am and 6pm and is controlled by ‘Pay & Display’ ticket machines.

Charges
£3 for two hours (maximum) or the relevant fraction (for example, £1.50 for one hour).  

Parking bays

Where parking bays are marked out, either on-street or in an off-street car park, it means that special conditions apply to parking there. The bays might be reserved for the disabled or for loading for example.

If you decide that you are clear to park there, you must make sure all the wheels of your vehicle are inside the parking bay – the vehicle must also not over hang the bay.
 
Once parked it is your duty to look around for signs saying what other conditions apply. It may be that a payment must be made or there is a parking time limit or maybe some residents are exempt but not others.
 
The bays may be marked for individual cars or be one long bay for multiple cars. Whenever you park in a marked bay always check for the special conditions that apply.
