Terms relating to all permits

1.The permit remains the property of the Council at all times. It may be cancelled in the event of repeated misuse, or if false information was given on the application form. Any permit which is cancelled must be returned to the Council.

2.The permit is only valid for use on a vehicle where the registration number appears printed on the face of the permit (maximum of three registrations). If you change your vehicle(s) you must notify the Council and return your old permit. A corresponding permit for the new vehicle(s) will be issued after completion of a new application. An administration charge of £15.00 will be made when issuing replacement Parking Permits.

3.The original permit issued must be displayed in the windscreen of the vehicle it is being used on, together with a parking disc(where applicable), clearly displaying the face of the permit so that it can be inspected by the Civil Enforcement Officer. If a permit is valid for more than one vehicle it is the responsibility of the driver to ensure that the permit has been transferred to the vehicle that is to be used. Copies must not be made and will not be seen as valid parking permits—Penalty Charge Notices will be issued where a valid permit is not shown.

4.General restrictions on the use of the Council’s Pay & Display car parks, imposed by the Craven District (Off-Street Parking Places) and (Consolidation) Order 2017 and any subsequent amendments, apply to permit holders.

5.Subject to these general restrictions, and to the conditions which apply to each particular type of permit, the permit allows one vehicle (as detailed on the face of the parking permit) parking during the charging hours (9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on every day of the week, including Sundays and Bank Holidays) in Craven District Council car parks.

6.Parking permits are issued with up to 3 registrations, although the permit can only be used in 1 vehicle at any given time. It is the driver’s responsibility to ensure a VALID permit is on display. Photocopies of the permit will not be accepted and result in a Penalty Charge Notice being issued.

Please note: If you do not comply with rules about displaying parking permits, as set out, the permit will not exempt you from having to pay at the meter for parking. You will then be subject to the usual penalties (Penalty Charge Notice) unless you pay for and display an ordinary ticket.
