City of York Council to introduce digital parking permits

From car parks to resident permits, City of York Council is making parking hassle and paper free with a new digital parking permit system.

The council has contacted all residents and customers in advance to make them aware that changes are coming.

More detailed information will be sent to them in advance of the ‘go live’ date in September. 

Commenting, City of York Council’s Executive Member for Transport, Councillor Andy D’Agorne said:

“The new digital parking permits will make parking hassle free and paperless, with new digital options to help residents, business and visitors access their details online.

“The new system brings a number of benefits for residents and businesses, including a hassle-free instant application response, ability to make instant changes to permits and for eligible permits, being able to swap permits from one vehicle to another.

“This change will see us not only reduce paper waste, but also future-proof the system and make accessing council services as easy as possible.”

Certain digital permits will be issued 'same day', removing the need for people to wait for a considerable time for their arrival through the post.

As soon as the digital permit is linked to a vehicle licence plate, residents and visitors will be able to park their vehicle, with customers only needing to apply for a new permit when their current one is about to expire.
