Residents, business and carers parking permits
Cheshire East Council is now able to offer permits for Residents Parking Schemes. Any scheme will always be introduced with full consultation of all the relevant people including residents and local businesses.
How to apply
Print off an application and apply for a permit only if your area has already had a scheme approved (check Current Status of Resident Parking Schemes (PDF, 20KB)). If you wish your area to be considered for a scheme please read the policy carefully and, if you think your area is suitable, get in touch with the council and request consideration.
Application packs will be delivered to all properties within the parking zones, or can be downloaded from the following links. All forms must be completed by hand and returned with copies of the requested documentary evidence. The forms may be inaccessible for users with assistive technologies.
Completed form and payment (if appropriate) should be posted to:
Change of vehicle registration number on a current permit
If you hold a current resident permit and are permanently changing your vehicle then you will need to have your current permit amended. Please telephone 0300 123 5020 to obtain a unique reference number as this number is required to be displayed in your new vehicle alongside your current permit, failure to display this reference number may result in the issue of a Penalty Charge Notice.
This unique reference number will be valid for 2 weeks and gives you time to submit a change of vehicle form. On receipt of this form we will then issue you with a green temporary permit which will be valid for 6 weeks to allow time for you to submit copies of the log book and insurance documentation. On receipt of this documentation a full permit will be then be issued. On receipt of your new permit, the old permit must be returned to us as failure to do so may incur a £10.00 cost.
If you hold a current resident permit but have to use a courtesy car then please telephone 0300 123 5020 to obtain a unique reference number to display alongside your current permit, failure to display this reference number may result in the issue of a Penalty Charge Notice. This unique reference number will be valid for 2 weeks. If you need to extend this then please call us back.
Visitors parking permit scratch cards
Visitors scratch cards are available to any household in the relevant zone even if they have not applied for a permit or do not own a vehicle.
A maximum batch of up to 4 books of 10 scratch cards are available at half price on initial application or at same annual date application (anniversary of first purchase). Applications made for discounted scratch cards can only be made annually. Scratch cards ordered at any other time will be at full cost even if the annual entitlement has not been fully used. If it has been over six months since you last purchased scratch cards you must provide a copy of a recent utility bill to confirm your residence.
On receipt of your payment, completed application form and copy utility bill (if required) we will then supply your scratch cards within 7 working days. All scratch cards will be sent via Royal Mail and we do not offer a same day collection service.
If you are interested in a permit for one of our car parks, details can be found on our Contract Parking Permits page.
Renewal of current permit
If you already have a resident permit you will need to arrange renewal of the permit at least 4 weeks prior to the expiry date.
For renewals, complete the application form for Residents Parking Permit (PDF, 285KB) which caters for both new and renewal applications.
Send a completed renewal form along with a copy of your log book and current insurance certificate and the £50.00 renewal fee, quoting your current permit number to Parking Services, Cheshire East Council, Municipal Buildings, Earle Street, Crewe CW1 2BJ. Or visit the Customer Centre in Macclesfield Town Hall to make your payment and present your forms and identification.
To renew a carers permit the renewal form should be completed by the householder NOT the carer - if the care requirement is temporary then a further letter will be required from the Doctor. If the care requirement is permanent and a doctors letter has previously been provided then only a completed application form is required. Whether the care requirement is temporary or permanent, a copy of a recent utility bill must accompany the application form to confirm continued residence at the property.

The purpose of residents parking schemes
In many areas it is difficult for residents to park, due to long term parking by commuters, shoppers and visitors. The purpose of any scheme is to stop this and allow the spaces to be used mainly for the benefit of residents.
