Resident Permit Information

  1. Due to the outbreak of coronavirus we are unable to process any permit applications, including residential visitors virtual sessions, at this time.

    You will not be fined or charged during this period.

    We will update this message / page when we are able to process applications again, please continue to check back here regularly for updates.

    We thank you for your patience and apologise for any inconvenience caused.



    Annual resident permits are only available to Waltham forest residents who live within a controlled parking zone and are not living in part of a car free development.

    Annual resident parking permits are virtual which means that there is no need to display a paper permit in the vehicle. Civil enforcement officers will be able to identify which vehicles have a valid permit from the vehicle registration number.

    You will need to supply:

    • 2 proofs of residency dated within the last 3 months and

    • Proof of vehicle ownership (V5 document) or letter from employer (on headed paper) confirming your employment, vehicle registration, make, model and colour and for use of vehicle (for company vehicles).

    • Copy of Vehicle Insurance policy registered to your home address within a Waltham Forest Controlled Parking Zone.

    Photographs of documentation will be accepted if you do not have access to a scanner.
