Terms and Conditions

It is the responsibility of the permit holder to apply for their new permit at least two weeks before the old one expires.  Proof of vehicle ownership and residency or company address is required for each permit renewal.  Permits are not transferable as they show the registration number of the vehicle for which they are issued.   Any change of vehicle or loss of permit must be reported immediately to Street Management Services.

If you move house or change your vehicle you should let us know immediately by contacting Street Management Services.  Permits must be displayed when the vehicle occupies a parking place during the restricted times. Failure to display a permit may result in the issue of a parking ticket.   Also if you are not correctly displaying a current permit, you are likely to receive a parking ticket.  Any misuse of the permit will result in the permit being withdrawn immediately and possible further action taken. 

Blantyre Street is situated within Zone C of the City Centre parking scheme.

The cost of this parking permit is £116 for 12 months.  

 If you wish to purchase a permit please forward a cheque made payable to Manchester City Council together with your paperwork.
