Parking permits

Inverness parking permits

We issue parking permits for residents, visitors and businesses to allow parking on roads close to their home or business while excluding vehicles without permits. The scheme does not guarantee a parking space and the online service is currently only offered in Inverness.

You must apply online for an Inverness Permit. If you need help, please contact staff at our  Inverness Service Point.

This scheme does not guarantee the availability of a parking space or a space outside your home. The permit only entitles you to park if space is available.
