Residents parking permits

Parking permits and their enforcement is undertaken by Salford City Council in respect of residents' parking schemes.

What you need to do to park in a scheme area

To park your vehicle in a residents' parking permit holders area you must either clearly display, with all details and counterfoil showing the relevant paper permit in your vehicles windscreen or be registered with the local authority`s digital permitting service (MiPermit).

In the event that neither is available please make alternative parking arrangements in an unrestricted area as your vehicle may be correctly issued with a Penalty Charge Notice.

Check the schemes below to see if you need a paper or digital permit.

Digital permitting

The local authority has started to move away from the issue of paper permits to a more efficient, customer and environmentally friendly digital parking permit service. At present there are only a few parking schemes which are available but more will move across to the new service in time and letters will be received by residents in due course inviting them to register with the service and apply for their digital permits.

Benefits to both residents and Salford City Council by going digital include:

  1. 24-hour access by residents and council to the digital permitting platform meaning quicker turnaround of applications and response times to requests such as changes to permit VRMs. No more waiting for the post to deliver your permit or the council to receive your application.
  2. Safe and secure online payments.
  3. No more risk of permits being lost/unavailable due to none return by visitors/contractors.
  4. Eliminates Penalty Charge Notices unnecessarily being issued to residents’ vehicles for the none display of a valid permit when forgotten to be displayed or when a permit falls from view, becomes obscured, damaged. Saving the time to appeal penalties issued in these circumstances.
  5. Better management of ongoing eligible permit holders, ensuring maximum on-street space is available to eligible residents only.
  6. Zero carbon footprint and environmentally friendly.
  7. Zero handling of paper applications/permits and post between individuals, helping prevent the possible spread of COVID-19.
