About the scheme

We introducing a mixture of permit parking for local residents and workers, paid for parking (pay & display) and areas of no waiting (double yellow lines). These proposals apply to on-street parking only; off-street car parks and private parking areas would not be affected.

Permit holder only parking

These are parking areas which can only be used by holders of a parking permit. People living or working in the area each area of the scheme (D1 Digbeth or D2 Irish Quarter) will be allowed to purchase permits to park in any permit holder parking bay in that area. Residents will also be able to apply for a permit for a carer who needs to visit them regularly and to purchase a limited number of one day permits for all other visitors.

Buying a permit would allow you to park in the marked areas, but would not guarantee you a parking space.

Blue Badge holders would also need to display a valid permit to park here, although their first resident permit would be free of charge. No advisory disabled bays can be marked out within a permit area and any existing white road markings would need to be removed.
