Doctor/health visitor parking permits

Doctors surgeries or medical organisations who need to frequently visit patients living within a Controlled Parking Zone may be issued with Doctor/Health Visitor (DHV) permits. These permits enable medical staff to park in any resident permit holder only space within the zone whilst they are carrying out essential home visits.

DHV permit holders may only park in permit holder only bays and shared use bays. They are not permitted to park in pay and display bays without purchasing a ticket, and permits do not give immunity from yellow line waiting restrictions. DHV permits are also not valid when parked outside your normal place of work.

The cost of a DHV permit is £20 per year.
