Residents' parking permits

Please note that due to financial pressures we're unable to consider developing any new residents' parking schemes in Barnsley.

We currently have four residents' parking zones in and around Barnsley and if you live within one of them, you can buy a parking permit to allow you to park anywhere within the zone. Having a permit doesn't guarantee a parking space directly outside your home.

You can also buy vouchers to allow visitors to your home or business to park in a designated space. They must not be used for people to park while they go to work or go shopping. 

Businesses can buy permits to allow them to park near their premises. We'll need proof that your vehicles are insured for business use before we grant you a permit.

How to use permits or vouchers

Permits and vouchers should only be used in the zone that’s printed on them. If you use them in a different zone or don’t correctly display them in your vehicle, you may receive a fine (Penalty Charge Notice/PCN).

We monitor the use of these vouchers and will investigate any wrongful use.

Apply for a permit or visitor vouchers

Before you apply, please read our information sheet.

You can apply for a permit or visitor vouchers if you can prove that you live in a parking zone and you:

  • own one or more vehicles
  • don't have a vehicle, but need vouchers for visitors
  • receive care from a care organisation (call us if you receive voluntary care from a family member or friend)

Use our application guidance to help you fill in our residents' parking permit application form (using Internet Explorer 11 or Google Chrome, download the form and fill in electronically using Microsoft Word). Please include the required documents with your applications.

Please don't apply if:

  • you don't live in a controlled parking zone
  • you own a property but don't live there - if you're a landlord, the resident should give you a voucher when you're collecting rent, visiting or carrying out general repairs

If you own or manage properties in our residents' parking zones, you may find it easier to park in the zones if you're a member of the Landlord Accreditation Scheme.
