The Council offers a range of permits which are needed to park in a permit zone. Purchase of a parking permit does not guarantee the right to a parking space. Failure to purchase a valid permit when parked in a permit zone may result in the issue of a Penalty Charge Notice.

Please note that each applicant is required to create an individual account to apply for their permits. Once you have created an account, applied for your permit and uploaded any required documents, you will be sent a confirmation email that the application is being reviewed. Once it has been checked and everything is in order, you will be contacted and offered the permit. If you still wish to purchase the permit you will be advised to log in to your account to make payment unless the permit is a Carer, Ultra-Low Green Permit, V1 Vaccination or Visitor Day Vouchers for Loughton and Central Milton Keynes.

The permit will only be valid once payment has been made and you have received the electronic receipt. Should you have a problem uploading documents please be aware this may affect the start date of your permit. If necessary, you can cancel the application and reapply once you have the required documents.

If you have more than one vehicle on a permit you must log in to your account to select the vehicle you are parking.

Carers Parking Permits

Please note a Carers Parking Permit is only available to a person who is employed either by a public service body or an officially registered company employing carers who are required to make house calls as a part of their normal duty (one permit per employee). 

You must provide written confirmation of employment from a public service body or officially registered company for your initial permit and any renewals.

A Carers Parking Permit can be used in any council owned residents parking places, signed as such.  A valid permit will entitle you to park without displaying a Residents Parking Permit. Paper Permits must be displayed clearly in the windscreen of your vehicle.

The permit is only valid when the carer is making a house call to a resident in accordance with that specified above.  The parking period must not be any longer than the duration of the house call.

From December 2021: MK Council employees will be required to show a letter from HR confirming that you are a carer required to visit the patient at their place of residence where a resident permit parking scheme is in effect.
