Parking permits for East Dorset car parks (Wimborne and Ferndown)

East Dorset District Council uses an online system for purchasing a parking permit. By using the system you will no longer receive a physical permit, instead receiving a virtual permit.

The information below gives this year's pricing (April 2018 - March 2019) and a link to the online system. Permits for 2018-19 will be available to purchase online throughout the month of March 2018. 

Please note there have been changes to Wimborne Resident and Old Road permits for 2018-19 so please read the terms and conditions carefully.

Please ensure you enter the correct registration number into the system- particular care should be taken when entering 0 (zero, the number) and O (the letter).  Mistakes will result in the issue of a Penalty Charge Notice.
