On 26th June 2023, Nottingham City Council introduced annual charges for permits to further manage the highway, encourage residents to look at different transport options, reduce congestion and improve air quality.

Your first permit per household is free and a charge applies for your second (£35 per year) and third (£50 per year) permits, if you need them.

Residents were consulted on this change in spring 2022 – thank you to everyone who gave their views. Changes were made based on your feedback to offer concessions on the permit charges for Blue Badge Holders and for those with eligible healthcare requirements.

To renew your permit, you must complete an application at least 4 weeks before your permit (including a virtual permit) expires.
