Harpenden Town Council in conjunction with St Albans District Council issue parking permits to staff working in the retail business in Harpenden Town Centre.  The scheme provides permits for Lydekker Car Park or Bowers Way Car Park and are not transferable.

Parking permits are issued to workers who need to use their cars to get to work in the Town.  They are issued for a fixed period and are subject to the scheme being reviewed.

Due to the demand for permits a waiting list is in place and applications are considered on a first come first served basis with the additional following criteria also being applied when considering the entitlement for permit allocations.    

 Criteria / entitlement for permit allocation:

  • Permits are issued for the period 1st April to 31st
  • Only one permit will be issued per person and is not transferable between vehicles.
  • Applicants must be a worker in the Town Centre. The scheme is intended to benefit the lower waged employees working for businesses in the town and priority will be given to the lower waged and sole trader workers.
  • Applications will only be accepted from workers, travelling by car, who reside 1 mile or more from the business address.
  • Supporting evidence by the applicant will be required from the employer, i.e. confirmation of employment by letter on business headed paper.
  • Evidence of vehicle details corresponding to vehicle ownership and home address will be required, i.e. vehicle registration document (V5C).
  • Permits are not valid for parking outside of the designated car park shown on the front of the permit.
  • Parking spaces are not guaranteed and spaces are subject to availability.
