On street 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 form and apply for a permit only if your area has already had a scheme approved. Note: a price increase came into effect on 13 Mar 2019 and any permits valid from or on that date will pay the new rate. It is not advisable to send cash through the post.

Check current status of Resident Parking Schemes.

Information packs and application forms




Change of vehicle registration number on a current permit

Permanent vehicle change requests are charged at £10 per change.

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.

A unique reference number will only be issued on receipt of completed form and a £10.00 change of vehicle payment has been made.

This unique reference number will be valid for 8 weeks to allow time for you to submit copies of the log book  to us. On receipt of this documentation a full permit will 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

Courtesy car

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 (dated within the last 3 months) 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.

Contract parking

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,1MB) which caters for both new and renewal applications.

Send a completed renewal form along with a copy of your V5 and proof of residency and the £60.00 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.
