Renew a nanny parking permit 

If your nanny parking permit is due to expire you should apply and pay for a renewal online. 

You can apply to renew your permit up to 30 days before your existing permit expires. We recommend you do this in good time in case we need to contact you about your application. 

If you have a paper permit, continue to display it until your virtual permit has been issued. You’ll get an email to confirm this.
