You can get a resident parking permit if you live in a controlled parking zone in Lambeth. You can get permits for 3 months, 6 months or 12 months.

To apply you must:

  • be a resident in one of Lambeth Council's controlled parking zones
  • spend at least 4 nights a week at the address you give for the permit

If you have a Blue Badge you can get a Lambeth White Badge. This lets you park in disabled bays in Lambeth without showing your Blue Badge, and you can leave it in your car overnight. Apply for a Lambeth white Badge.

Use a different service to order visitor parking permits.

Where you can park with this permit

This permit is for on-street parking only, not car parks or parking on council estates. You can only use it to park in the controlled parking zone where you live.
