About the temporary residential carers card

The carer’s card will be valid for a maximum period of three hours at any one time. Should the applicant require 24 hour care please tick the appropriate box.
A maximum of one carer’s card is available per property.
Two residents’ with similar needs at the same address cannot apply for two carers cards.
How to use the carers card
Carers can only park in ‘Resident Permit Holder Only’ bays and not on double yellow lines and is only valid in the street specified or the adjacent street if the nominated street is full.
The carer’s card must be returned to the house immediately after use and left in a suitable place for others to retrieve.
