Sole Street Controlled Parking Zone

There are various Controlled Parking Zones (CPZs) throughout the Borough.

We issue permits based on which zone your street is in. This means your permit can only be used in whichever zone your property is in. It can't be used for any of the other zones.

You have only been provided information on the Sole Street CPZ, based on your street search.

What roads are included in this CPZ?

Permits

Who can apply for Waiver Permits?

All of the roads listed in the above table can apply for waiver permits.

The CPZ is marked by a single yellow line throughout the affected area and signs are in place at each entry to the zone. Permits only exempt the vehicle from the CPZ restriction and do not exempt the vehicle from any other restrictions in the zone such as double yellow lines or timed bay restrictions.

Waiver Permits

What you need to know

  • The quickest way to apply is online.
  • Waiver Permits cost £15 per year, per permit.
  • If you don’t attach the documentation requested below when applying, your permit will be delayed.
  • We aim to process applications within five working days; however this may not always be possible. Please allow additional time for postage of your permit. Permits are automatically sent to the address provided.
  • Alternative parking arrangements must be made whilst waiting for your new permit to arrive. Simply applying for a permit does not grant permission to park.
  • Permits are issued based on the property, not per resident.
  • We can issue one waiver permit if the property has off street parking available. If no off street parking is available, two waiver permits can be issued.
  • There are no separate resident or visitor waiver permits, a waiver permit can be used by a resident or visitor.
  • Renewal reminders are only sent via email and therefore a valid email address should be provided. Emails are sent from parking.permits@gravesham.gov.uk so to avoid this reminder going to your junk/spam email, please ensure the email address is added to your contacts.
  • Whilst you can choose the start date of your permit, our system will automatically enter the earliest start date allowed, seven working days from the date of the application. This allows five working days for processing of the application plus an additional two working days for postage of the permit.
  • Permits are not transferable between residents therefore if you move house the permit should not be passed onto the occupant. You should ensure that the permit is returned to Gravesham Borough Council.
  • Vehicle registration details are not a requirement and therefore you can leave the details on the ‘VRM’ (vehicle registration mark) page of the application blank.

New applications

New applications will need to provide the following:

  • Proof of residency dated within the last three months. Proof can be in the form of utility bills, bank statements or tenancy agreements. Driving licences are not accepted as proof of residency.

When you apply for a permit for the first time, you will need to register your details. At the end of the application, you will receive a unique 'Applicant ID' which all of your permits will be linked to. Please keep a note of this ID, you'll need it when you need to renew your permit or if you apply for any additional permits, including visitors permits.

Please do not create duplicate Applicant IDs, it can slow down your application. If you don't know whether you already have an Applicant ID, please email parking.permits@gravesham.gov.uk. We aim to respond to emails within five working days.

Declaration

I understand that any permit issued to me is conditional on my informing Gravesham Borough Council in writing and surrendering the permit in case of moving from the stated address.

Renewals

Over the last 18 months we have been reviewing the existing CPZ restriction that is detailed above. The current restrictions are still in place and will continue to be until 21 March 2021. The review is nearing completion and changes will be made from 22 March 2021. In the meantime, if you have a waiver permit that expired after 1 January 2021, you do not need to renew this. Please continue displaying this and our Civil Enforcement Officers will accept this as valid until 21 March 2021. Letters will be sent to all properties once the changes have been finalised, advising what residents need to do regarding applying for new permits.

Change of address

  • Email your Applicant ID to parking.permits@gravesham.gov.uk advising that you need to apply for a change of address. Your applicant ID can be found on your previous permit letter.
  • Attach proof of residency dated within the last three months. Proof can be in the form of utility bills, bank statements, tenancy agreements etc. Driving licences are not accepted as proof of residency.
  • You will be contacted to make payment of a £5 replacement charge.
  • Your previous permit will need to be returned via post or handed into the Meet & Greet desk at the Civic Centre before a replacement can be processed (copies cannot be accepted).

Please note the charge and return of your permit only applies if you are moving to a different CPZ. If you are still within the same CPZ, no replacement permit is needed and so you will not need to return your old permit or make a payment for a replacement. However we will still require all other information as detailed above in order to amend our records.

If you move into a road within a different scheme (i.e. Residents Parking Scheme), we cannot transfer the permit as different charges apply. You will need to apply as a new applicant at your new address and return any previous permits.

Replacements cannot be applied for via our online system.

Lost permit

  • Email your Applicant ID to parking.permits@gravesham.gov.uk advising that you need to apply for a replacement of a lost permit. Your applicant ID can be found on your previous permit letter.
  • You will be contacted to make payment of a £5 replacement charge.

The previous permit will become void at the point the replacement is issued and therefore the permit will no longer be valid. Any vehicle displaying the permit is subject to the standard parking restrictions.

Replacements cannot be applied for via our online system.
