Overview

If your business is in a controlled parking zone (CPZ), you may be eligible for a business parking permit for vehicles that are used for business reasons.

Business permits are virtual permits and are valid for 12 months from the chosen start date. 

A business permit is only valid in the CPZ it was issued for. Having a permit does not guarantee you a parking space or give you the right to park outside your business. 

Employees of a business cannot use a business parking permit to park their own car at their place of work. 

Who can apply 

Your business must be registered at an address in a CPZ in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.  

Enter the postcode of your registered business address to find out more information about business permits in your CPZ, including how much it costs. Not all addresses in a CPZ are entitled to a permit. 

If your business has more than one vehicle 

A business permit can have up to 2 vehicles registered to it, but it will only be valid for use on one vehicle at a time.  

You can manage which vehicles are registered to your permit in your online account. You must make sure your permit is assigned to the correct vehicle or you could get a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN). 

Apply online
