Green (Electric Vehicle / Low Emissions) Parking Permits 

To support and encourage the use of Ultra Low Emission Vehicles (ULEV), Milton Keynes Council has agreed to remove the normal fee for certain Green Parking Permits for parking in Central Milton Keynes (from 7 July 2016). The permit will allow ULEVs to park for free in the standard charge (purple bays). Charges still apply to premium (red) bays. The parking restrictions for charging bays remain unchanged, and the vehicles will need to be charging in certain Electric Vehicle bays – please check the on street signage.

To qualify for the free permit, the vehicle must be classified as a ULEV in line with the criteria set by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles. (PDF, 140KB) The criteria is that vehicles must be either wholly electric or plug in hybrids with a range of at least 15 miles on pure electric. A list of current vehicles which qualify is set out in the attached PDF document.

Please note vehicles with emissions above 75g/km but below 100g/km will need to purchase the Green Permit at a cost of £195 per annum.

Unfortunately the council cannot offer refunds to ULEVs that have already been issued a Green Permit.

Please note applicants who hold a green parking permit that was issued before 4 April 2013 and the CO2 emissions are between 101 (g/km) and 120 (g/km) are still able to apply for a new green permit for the duration that they remain the owner of the said vehicle.

Unlike most other permits available, you do not need to either work or live in Central Milton Keynes, as long as your vehicle meets the emissions criteria.

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).

Please 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.
