Resident Registration Card

Information about Resident Registration Cards, including who qualifies for a registration card and how to purchase or renew these.

What is a Resident Registration Card?

Resident Registration Cards allow residents to purchase Visitor Permits for their visitors, when they live in a Controlled Parking Zone, or on a street that is covered by a Resident Permit Scheme. Visitor Permits can then be used by visitors to park close by to a residency, with an exemption from certain parking restrictions in place.

Residents in possession of a Resident Permit do not need to purchase a Resident Registration Card.

Do I qualify for a Resident Registration Card?

If your property is situated within the boundary of a Controlled Parking Zone, or if you live on a street covered by a Resident Permit Scheme, it is likely that you will qualify for a Resident Registration Card. There are some exceptions to this however, such as if this is a holiday home and not your primary residency. When installing a Controlled Parking Zone or Resident Permit Scheme, the council assesses each affected property individually.

There are some residencies within Beverley’s Controlled Parking Zone that have off-street parking, therefore residents do not qualify for a Resident Permit, however residents are able to purchase a Resident Registration Card so that their visitors can park on-street. 

To find out if this applies to you, please contact the council on:

Tel: (01482) 393939

Where are the Controlled Parking Zones within the East Riding?

Where are the Resident Permit Scheme locations within the East Riding?

Resident Permit Scheme locations are as follows:

  • Anlaby – Wilson Street
  • Brough – Grassdale Park, King Edwards Terrace, Saltgrounds Road and Station Road
  • Hessle – Gladstone Street and Grovehill
  • Willerby – Kingsley Drive and Main Street. 

Do I need to pay for a Resident Registration Card?

Yes. Due to the cost associated with implementing and enforcing a Controlled Parking Zone or Resident Permit Scheme, residents are required to pay for registration cards.

Resident Registration Cards cost £15.00 per year, and need to be renewed annually.

Blue Badge holders are not required to pay for a Resident Registration Card.

Where can my visitors park with a Visitor Permit?

Visitor Permits can be used to park in any parking place within your particular Controlled Parking Zone or Resident Permit Scheme location, where the adjacent signage states ‘Resident permit holders’.

Please see examples of signage below.

In Bridlington, the sign also specifies either Zone A or Zone B, such as the in the photograph on the right:

Parking signs

From time to time, the council may need to suspend the use of a number of parking places for reasons such as to enable essential maintenance works to take place. Notices displayed on-street will advise motorists of the dates and times of the suspension – Visitor Permits will not be valid in any affected parking places during these times, therefore permit holders should make alternative parking arrangements.
