A residents parking scheme is in place in Waveney to help residents in Lowestoft, Halesworth, Bungay and Beccles to park near their homes.
It only applies to residents of certain streets and designated areas in the town centres and permits are provided for an annual fee of £22.00 this includes the postage fee and a permit holder. You can only apply for one permit per house-hold.
In residents parking areas where there is no provision for parking on the street, a permit is available to park in a designated car park. These tickets can be purchased for either 1 month, at a cost of £15 or 1 year, costing £150 both these costs include the postage fee and a permit holder. These permits are vehicle specific, with the exception of Ravensmere Car Park in Beccles.
From 1 April 2016 residents parking permits will no longer be available the same day from our offices over the counter. Applications after this date must be made in advance, at least 10 working days before the date of expiry on your existing permit or in advance of the required commencement date if you are a new applicant.
Your new permit will be posted to your qualifying address.
Please ensure when renewing your permit that you apply in good time before your current permit expires, you are able to do this one month in advance.

To ensure that the resident's areas are only used by cars with a permit we employ Car Parking Officers to enforce the conditions. They can issue an Excess Charge Notices for breach of conditions. E.g. where a vehicle is parked in a marked bay without a permit or unauthorised vehicles. The council will issue an Excess Charge Notice for an illegally parked vehicle which will advise the owner how to pay the required fine or appeal against the ticket.
Waveney District Council also offers a season ticket car parking scheme. Permits can be used in any of the Waveney Long Stay Car Parks and anyone can apply.
