Renew your resident parking permit

Complete this form to renew your existing parking permit.


We are currently experiencing a high volume of applications which we are working through and will process your application as soon as possible.

We are now issuing virtual resident parking permits and you are no longer required to display a paper version. Please ensure you know your controlled parking zone prefix when leaving your vehicle in a permit holder bay.

Civil enforcement officers have handheld devices that tell them if a vehicle has a valid resident parking permit. Vehicles without a valid virtual resident parking permit will be liable to a penalty charge notice.

We will issue your vehicle with a virtual permit that will become valid as soon as the Residential Permits Team confirms your payment.

Please note: Payments made on weekends and Bank Holidays will not be processed until the next working day therefore you must legally park until you receive confirmation from the Residential Permits Team that your virtual permit is valid.

When to apply

You can only renew if your permit is due to expire within the next month or we have recently sent you a reminder letter.

You will need the following:

Please read the terms and conditions (below) before you apply.

Terms and conditions of renewing your resident parking permit

I declare that my normal place of abode is at the address I have entered on this form, and I intend to be there for at least six weeks. I wish to renew the resident’s parking permit for the vehicle specified in this application.

I will only allow my visitors’ permits to be used for parking a vehicle which belongs:

  • to me (or is on hire or lease);
  • to a member of my household at my given address;
  • or to a visitor to my household at my given address and where that visit is the primary purpose of parking the vehicle.

I understand that any abuse of the permit system (as set out in the parking order including the sale or attempted sale of the permits) may result in Oxfordshire County Council withdrawing the permits. I may also be disqualified from applying for any further visitors’ permits for up to six months or such different time period as prescribed by the order as varied from time to time.

I understand that any permit issued to me by Oxfordshire County Council is for the vehicle and address entered on this form.
