Parent Parking Permits
Reminder re: Application Process Change Changes from July 2022
The ability to apply for virtual school permits will be released in July 2022, via the Councils self-serve permit account service. Information on how parents can create an account and apply for a permit should now be available on the Councils website.
New Process Parents will no longer need to submit a school approved paper application and instead the application process will be carried out online. The school permit process is listed below for your information:
Step 1: Resident/Non Resident creates a parking permit account (or logs in if they already have one)
Step 2: Parent completes the application for a School Permit for the required school, during this application they are required to answer questions relating to their child and year/class of attendance.
Step 3: The application is then electronically assigned to the applicable school for approval.
Step 4: School logs into online account to review pending applications, if the parent/child is entitled to the permit then the school can approve the application electronically (if not acceptable the application can also be rejected).
Step 5: Parent is notified by email that their application has been approved and are required to log back into their account to make payment online
Step 6: Once payment is made the permit is activated virtually (no requirement for something to be displayed in the vehicle).
Please note: the school’s criteria for approving permits will remain the same (i.e. distance from school) and the number of permits we have been allocated continues to be 80. I understand that the application forms will be available to complete from the middle of next week. I will email parents once I have confirmation of the date of release.
