Dorset County Council operates permitted parking schemes across Dorset. Sign plates show the hours of operation of each scheme/zone. The cost for a 6 month resident permit is £40 and the cost for a 12 month resident permit is £70. Visitor permit costs are £16 for 20, with a 50% discount for residents over the age of 60.

Dorset County Council are changing the way we deal with processing resident and visitor permits and would like to introduce you to MiPermit who will be managing resident permits on behalf of Dorset County Council. We are introducing virtual permits which can be applied via the MiPermit website which means you no longer need to display a paper permit.
