Hotel and Guesthouse Visitor Permits are available to hotels and guesthouses that are located within Beverley’s Controlled Parking Zone, or within one of Bridlington’s two Controlled Parking Zones. These permits are purchased by the hotel/guesthouse and then issued to their visitors. The permits give visitors an exemption from a limited waiting restriction (a time restriction) in certain parking places nearby to the hotel/guesthouse.
Hotel and Guesthouse Visitor Permits are a virtual permit, which are issued via the MiPermit system. Hotel/guesthouse owners are set up with a MiPermit account, and are allocated the same amount of daily virtual Hotel and Guesthouse Visitor Permits as they have rooms available for guests. For example, if a hotel has 10 rooms for guests, they are allocated 10 Hotel and Guesthouses Visitor Permits per day. The hotel/guesthouse then activates one of their available permits as and when it is required, via their MiPermit account.
Am I able to purchase Hotel and Guesthouse Visitor Permits if I own a Holiday Let?
Owners of a Holiday Let are now entitled to purchase Hotel and Guesthouse Visitor Permits to issue to their guests, as long as the property is registered as non-domestic with the council, and appropriate business rates are being paid.
If the property is registered as a domestic property, with part of the property being let out for guests (such as on Air BnB) then you will unfortunately not be entitled to purchase Hotel and Guesthouse Visitor Permits.
Holiday Lets will only be allocated one virtual Hotel and Guesthouse Permit to use at one time, as these types of property generally only accommodate one booking at a time. If a Holiday Let sleeps a high number of guests, then we will assess permit allocation on a case by case basis.
