Guildford and Waverley visitor permits

About visitor permits

Visitor and residential parking permits are currently taking 7 working days to process.

Who can buy a visitor permit?

Any resident can buy a visitor permit.

You will need to buy a visitor permit when a visitor to your property will be:

  • parking for a long period
  • parking within the controlled parking zone

A tradesperson visiting your property will not be able to park in a controlled zone without a permit.

The visitor permits are like scratch cards. Your visitor must make their permit visible in their vehicle from the moment they arrive.

How much does a visitor permit cost?

Visitor permits are £2 each and are valid for one day.

If you are a Guildford resident, you can buy up to 60 visitor permits, per household, per year.

If you are a Waverley resident, you can buy up to 120 visitor permits per household, per year.

We may be able to offer extra permits, for example, if temporary building work is taking place. You will need to show proof of the building work for each application.
