Resident visitor permits - Rye


All temporary changes made to parking and permits during the coronavirus (COVID 19) outbreak have now ended.

How many resident visitor permits can I buy?

  • 50 permits per year per household
  • 75 permits per year if you are housebound – you will have to provide proof, such as a letter from your doctor.

You should buy visitor permits in advance although you do not need to buy all the permits in one go and can apply for more at any time.

Even if you do not have a resident parking permit, you can still buy day permits for your visitors. They are scratch card permits, which you will need to validate to show the date of use and the vehicle registration. Full instructions are shown on the permits.

Visitors can park in shared use or permit holder only bays within the correct zone for the permit (the zone you live in). Permits are not valid in any other bay or in any off street car park.

The permit is valid on the date that is scratched off and up to 10am the next day.

Having a permit does not guarantee a parking space.

How much do they cost?

  • Standard resident visitor permit – 50p
  • Housebound resident visitor permit – 25p

They 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 by cash, cheque (payable to ‘ESCC’) or credit or debit card at one of these libraries:

When you apply you will need let us know which library you want to collect the permits from.
