Parking and roads

Do you offer any parking for residents?

Yes, our resident parking bays operate between 8am and 6pm. Anyone living, or who has a business, within our  permit zone (PDF) [57KB] (opens new window)  can apply for a permit.

Parking permit scheme

A parking permit scheme is available for anyone who lives, or who has a business, within the resident zone in Great Yarmouth. This scheme is administered by King's Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council and it works alongside Norfolk County Council to run this.

  • If your property falls within the resident parking zone, you will be eligible to apply for a permit.
  • The permit is a virtual permit so you will not need to display a permit in your vehicle.
  • The permit is for vehicles that will be parked on the street within the resident zone. You do not need a permit to park on your driveway.
  • Motorbikes, mopeds and all powered two wheelers do not require a permit.
  • Any resident with a vehicle registered at an address within the zone can apply for a permit. If your household has more than one vehicle registered to your address, all vehicles will need a permit to park on the street.
  • If you have regular visitors to your property, you can also apply for one visitor permit per property address.
  • If you are a business within the resident parking zone, you can apply for one business permit and one business visitor permit.
