Parking Permits for North Dorset car parks

Parking permit information for North Dorset car parks (Blandford Forum, Gillingham, Shaftesbury and Sturminster Newton).

Parking Permits

It is possible to purchase Parking Permits for a number of our car parks but there are restrictions on the number of permits per car park. Permits allow the user to park their vehicle in a designated car park whenever required for as long a period as necessary.  

Permits are not transferable between vehicles or car parks. Details shown on permits are: designated car park, registration number(s) (maximum of 2) and expiry date. It is possible for businesses to have their business name in place of the registration number.

If a car park is full, you will be added to the waiting list. You can see a full list of car parks in Dorset.

Apply for, or renew an existing car parking permit:

Parking permit conditions of use:

1. when a vehicle is parked on any day the original permit issued by the council (no photocopies) must be displayed so that all of the details on its front side (permit number, expiry date etc) are clearly visible through the front windscreen of the vehicle

2. the vehicle must be parked wholly within a parking bay but not a disabled bay or parent and child bay

3. the permit remains the property of North Dorset District Council and it can be withdrawn for misuse

4. the issue of a permit does not guarantee the holder a parking space, nor does it render NDDC subject to any liability in respect of loss or damage to any vehicle or its contents or fittings

5. the responsibility for applying for the renewal of a permit rests with the holder

6. Should you lose your permit or change your vehicle please phone 01305 838236 and quote your permit number.  A charge of £10 will be made for the replacements of lost permits

7. a vehicle is likely to be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice if the permit is expired, not displayed correctly or not for the relevant vehicle or car park
