Resident Parking Permits

If you live in a property whereby you do not have suitable off-street parking and you live adjacent to or close to a Council car park, then you may be able to purchase a Residents Parking Permit. This page explains what you need to do in order to buy a resident parking permit.

Where can I park with a resident parking permit?

Residents Parking Permits are available in the following car parks:

  • Enderby Road and Johns Court Car Park, Blaby
  • Weavers Court Car Park, Narborough
  • Leicester Road Car Park, Narborough
  • The Grange Car Park, Narborough

Due to the size of the Leicester Road car park in Narborough we are only able to offer a limited number of Residents Parking Permits. Applications are open to specific addresses and where no alternative parking is available (for example on-street parking or driveway). Normal residence qualification requirements also apply. Please contact the Parking Team at the Council for further information. 

If you are a resident of the recently refurbished Old Bank flats at The Grange in Narborough and would like to apply for a Residents Parking Permit, please contact the Parking Team.

  4. The permit must be clearly displayed in the vehicle when it is parked in the car park.
  5. Vehicles displaying a valid permit are permitted to park within the car park to which the permit applies without displaying a payment ticket and without time limit.
  6. Failure to display the permit will lead to the issue of a Penalty Charge Notice as described in the Parking Places Order currently in force on the car park.
  7. The Environmental Health, Housing & Community Services Group Manager reserves the right to limit the number of Residents’ Parking Permits that are issued to best manage the operation of the car park.
