Parking permits allow you and your visitors to park in controlled parking zones (CPZs) in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.  

There's a different parking permits system for council estates

You can apply for, renew and manage your CPZ permits online. You can also: 

  • transfer your parking permit to a new vehicle or courtesy vehicle 
  • get a refund on your parking permit 
  • apply to park on a yellow line

When you apply, you’ll usually get a virtual permit instead of a paper one. You’ll get an email to confirm that your permit has been issued.  

If you have a paper permit, it will continue to be valid until its expiry date.
