Resident parking permit

Parking permits were mailed to every household in the Derbyshire Dales with 2017/18 Council Tax bills in the middle of March 2017, and the document management company contracted to do the mail-out on our behalf has confirmed that every Council Tax bill envelope had a parking permit enclosed in it. A message to this effect was also printed on every envelope. When anyone contacted us in March and April claiming not to have received a permit, we simply checked against the mail-out register. As last year's parking permit ran out at the end of March, we would have expected to be contacted by anyone claiming not to have received their new permit at that time, but, as a goodwill gesture, we extended the amnesty to the end of April. Now however the usual rules apply, as stated clearly on this webpage, where the administration fee for a replacement or second parking permit is £60.

  • It is valid for use before 11.00AM and after 4.00PM, at all other times you must pay and display.
  • Displaying the badge will enable you to park without paying, but all other rules apply.

Please look after the badge as free replacements will not be issued.
