Resident Parking Permits

On-street resident parking permit scheme

Personal data will be collected in order to facilitate the Resident Permit scheme. Data will be collected in accordance with our Privacy Notice.

West Berkshire Council operates on-street permit parking in doc icon residential zones and roads [48kb] where parking is in high demand.  The scheme enables residents to purchase parking permits which allow them to park in sections set aside for permit holders. We use a virtual permit system, provided by MiPermit.

In order to register an account at a property within the scheme, you'll need the property's unique Council Tax Property reference number, which can be found on your Council Tax bill. Please contact the Council Tax Team if you need help finding your property reference number.

If you live in, or are about to move to, a property that falls within the scheme, you can apply for a virtual permit online or call 0345 520 7007.

Charges and supporting documents

There is a £30 annual fee for a residents permit; except in Hungerford High Street and Park Terrace, Newbury, where the fee is £70.

Residential parking guidelines

Please note that:

  • converted or newly built properties are not eligible to be part of the scheme
  • a maximum of two parking permits per household can be issued where no off-street parking is available
  • it's the resident's responsibility to renew their parking permit - a text or email reminder will be sent automatically by the virtual system before your existing permit expires

Please see the full list of doc icon resident permit guidelines [62kb] and doc icon MiPermit terms and conditions [26kb] for more information.

Visitor Parking Permits

To enable guests and visitors to park during restricted periods, you may purchase visitor parking permits. These are available in bundles of five individual permits for £5.

Visitor parking permits are also done virtually and you can apply online or by calling 0345 520 7007.

Visitor parking permits will continue to be offered in the form of a scratch card system and can be purchased by completing the doc icon residents parking permit application form [43kb]. Proof of residency will be required. Please see the pdf icon proof of residency guidelines [14kb] for more information.

Please note that visitor parking permits are not available to residents of Hungerford High Street or Park Terrace, Newbury.

If you don't qualify for a resident parking permit, check our parking charges, or apply for a car park Season Ticket.
