Resident parking permits

Information about our five Residents Parking Scheme areas, and how to apply/renew for a parking permit in these areas.

Please renew your resident priority parking permit/visitor voucher as normal when your current permit expires, the resident parking scheme is not on hold and has not been cancelled.

As you are aware Doncaster Council sent out the resident survey letter on the 31/01/2020 as we wanted to know your views on the residential parking scheme and that the completed survey form be returned to Doncaster by the 29/02/2020. Doncaster Council was in the process of collating all the data when the country went in to lockdown due to the Global Pandemic Covid-19.  This meant that all non-essential work was put on hold such as the work of collating the data, so we kindly ask that you bear with us during these unprecedented times and as soon as we are able, we will complete this task and will publish the results on the resident parking permits web page.
