Carers permit

If you receive home visits from a carer and you live within a controlled parking zone then you may be entitled to a carers parking permit. 

You may also apply for a carers permit if you work for a carers agency and provide multiple residents of Barking and Dagenham with home visits. 

How to apply

You can apply for a new carer permit, or renew an existing one by completing the Carer's Permit application form:

If you are a resident receiving care you must provide proof of your care needs:

  • a letter from your GP or NHS 
  • welfare benefit entitlement letter confirming you are in receipt of the Care component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

If you are a care provider/agency you must provide proof that you are providing care to a Barking and Dagenham resident (e.g. a contract). 

Permit price

  • 6 month permit, £83.50
  • 12 month permit, £125

Where you can park

  1. The permit only allows you to park in a 'Resident Permit Holders Only' parking place during the controlled hours in a specific parking zone associated with the permit holder's address. 
  2. The permit does not allow you to park in 'Business Permit Holders Only' parking places, pay and display bays, yellow lines or any other parking restriction.
