Residents parking permits

The council oversees residents' parking schemes across Salford, including parking permits and enforcement.

What you need to do to park in a scheme area

To mark in a resident' permit holder area, you must either:

  • clearly display the paper permit in your vehicle's windscreen
  • or be registered our digital permit service (offered through MiPermit)

If don't have a paper or digital parking permit, you need to park elsewhere, or risk being issued with a Penalty Charge Notice.

How to apply for a permit

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

To apply for a new or replacement paper permit, please complete the downloadable form at the bottom of this page and either post to Parking Services or email it to

Before making an application for a paper permit, please check to see if your area is managed by digital permits first. We will explain how to apply for a digital permit further down this page.

Digital permits

We've started to move from paper to digital permits. At the moment, there are only a few parking schemes which are available. However, more areas will be moving to digital permits - residents will be written to so they can register with the digital permit service and apply for a digital permit.

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.
  2. No more waiting for the post to deliver your permit or the council to receive your application.
  3. Safe and secure online payments.
  4. No more risk of permits being lost/unavailable due to not being returned by visitors/contractors.
  5. Eliminates Penalty Charge Notices unnecessarily being issued to residents’ vehicles for not displaying a valid permit when forgotten to be displayed (or when a permit falls from view, becomes obscured or is damaged).
  6. Saving the time to appeal penalties issued in these circumstances.
  7. Better management of ongoing eligible permit holders, ensuring maximum on-street space is available to eligible residents only.
  8. Zero carbon footprint and environmentally friendly.
  9. Zero handling of paper applications/permits and post between individuals, helping prevent the possible spread of COVID-19.

Schemes that use digital permits:

  • Trinity Way Residents Permit Scheme (Salford M3)
  • Fire Station Square Residents Permit Scheme (Salford M5)
  • Crompton Street Residents Permit Scheme (Swinton, M27)
  • Salford Quays Residents Permit Scheme (The Quays,M50)
