Contractor Permits are a virtual permit and are purchased through the MiPermit system. You input your vehicle registration mark when purchasing a permit, then when a Civil Enforcement Officer checks the registration mark on their handheld computer, they can view your permit details.
Contractor Permits can be purchased for one day or one week at a time. If a contractor has a job that is due to last for a few weeks, numerous weekly permits should be purchased. If a job is booked in that is due to last for one month or longer, longer term Contractor Permits are available, however proof of scheduled works must be supplied to the council for consideration.
If you require a longer term Contractor Permit, please contact the Parking Operations Team on (01482) 393939 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this.
Contractor Permits are paid for using a credit or debit card, so please also have this to hand when purchasing a permit.
To purchase a daily or weekly Contractor Permit:
- Log into your MiPermit account
- Click on the ‘Buy Digital Permits’ button
- Click on the ‘Contractor Permits’ button
- Click ‘Continue’
- Follow instructions on-screen to apply for a Contractor Permit.
Once you have set up a MiPermit account and purchased a Contractor Permit, you will be able to view/amend your permit(s) at any time by logging into your MiPermit account and clicking ‘Manage Digital Permits’.
If you need any assistance using the MiPermit system please contact MiPermit directly on 0345 520 7007. These calls cost the same as a national rate call, and from a mobile phone will be included in your minutes package (where applicable).
