Healthcare workers and carers permits - Eastbourne

There are some temporary changes to parking and permits during the coronavirus (COVID 19) outbreak. See the: Temporary changes to parking, webpage for more information.

You can now apply for disabled parking bays and access protection markings online. For more details see: Apply for an access protection marking and also see: Apply for disabled parking bay.

Who can use a healthcare and carer permit?

Permits can be used by doctors, nurses, midwives, health visitors, social workers, and carers who provide services to clients in their homes in the controlled parking zone.

Your organisation will need to apply for the permits in advance and distribute to staff as required. The application will need to be submitted on a headed letter showing the number of permits you are applying for.

We will not accept applications from individual members of staff.

The permits are scratch cards, which you will need to validate to show the date of use and the vehicle registration. Full instructions are shown on the permits.

Where can I park with a healthcare and carer permit?

You can park in shared use or permit holder only bays in any parking zone in Eastbourne.

Permits are not valid in any other bay or in any off street car park.

The permit is valid on the date that it is scratched off only. Multiple visits can be made with one permit on any one day.

Having a permit does not guarantee a parking space.

The use of healthcare worker and carer permits will be regularly monitored to make sure parking reflects compliance with these terms.

Permits must be clearly displayed so that all the details can be read by a civil enforcement officer.

How much do they cost?

They cost £1.20 each and can be bought individually or in books of ten.

Permits are not transferable, exchangeable or refundable.

Payment can be made online when your application is approved. Or once you have received confirmation that your application has been approved you can pay at one of these libraries:
