Types of parking permits

We have three different types of parking permit:

  • resident permit
  • business permit
  • seasonal long stay car park permit.

Some residents and businesses qualify for permits for various parking zones in Paisley.

We issue parking permits for these zones subject to conditions.

  • zone 1: a maximum of one permit per household
  • zones 2 and 3: a maximum of two permits per household - business and visitor permits may be available.

Conditions of your parking permit

If you have a parking permit, you can only park within the lined parking bays within specific zones. You can't park in any other area using this permit.

Your parking permit does not guarantee a parking space within the specific area.

Your car must be registered in the name and address shown on your application form.

If you have a company or leased car, you must prove the vehicle is used only by you. Send a letter from your company confirming this with your application.

We also must see your V5 Vehicle Registration document for each permit application, including renewals.  

The scheme does not allow for borrowed or shared vehicles that are not registered within the zone.
