Renew & pay for Parking Permits

Permits are available to all car, van or motorcycle drivers.

Free parking for NHS staff and volunteers has now ended

During the Covid-19 emergency response, Craven District Council, along with other local councils across the country, has been offering free on-street and off-street car parking in local authority car parks to all on duty NHS staff members, health or social care workers, and NHS Volunteer Responders.

Following the publication of the government’s roadmap for lifting Covid-19 restrictions, the Government has issued guidance that these parking passes should not be accepted after 21 June 2021. We will no longer be accepting these passes.

Permits can be used to park in some designated Council Pay and Display Car Parks in Skipton, Settle and Ingleton, providing a space is available.

There are some restrictions on where and when each permit may be used, more than one vehicle may be registered on the permit - please read our Terms & Conditions.

Permits can be registered to either residents or businesses. Resident permits are available as short, medium and long stay. Business permits are available as long stay only.

Using your parking permit

You must display your permit in the windscreen so it can be inspected by Civil Enforcement officers. 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 it is to be used on.

You need to ensure that your permit is valid, in date and that the vehicle registration number is correct. We reserve the right to withdraw a permit if it has expired, or has been altered, defaced or passed to unauthorised users.

Buying and renewing a parking permit

You can buy a residential or business permit online. You can also renew your permit online if your details have not changed.  

Changing a permit

You can add or remove vehicles or change permit type by sending in your existing permit for cancellation with new details to Customer Services at Belle Vue Square. We charge an administration fee of £15.00 for each time a change is requested. You can pay this online.

The current permit will need to be returned to us before the new permit can be issued - this is for audit and finance purposes.

Cancelling a parking permit

You can cancel a permit by sending us a Refund Request form and return with existing permit to or post to the Permit team at Craven District Council.
