Apply for a Season Ticket or PermitRegister or apply for a permit
Welcome to our new Parking Permit Portal. This digital service allows you to apply and manage your season ticket or permit online.
This application process is for Hastings Borough Council car parks only. For on-street parking permits please visit East Sussex County Council website.
The new application process will make renewing your ticket or permit much faster and more efficient. As you will now be able to apply 24/7 and once accepted, the virtual season ticket or permit is usually issued instantly.
This means you will no longer need to display a physical paper season ticket or permit in your vehicle which could be lost, stolen or damaged and it also removes the inconvenience of waiting for it to arrive in the post. While offering environmental benefits by reducing the need to print paper copies.
The new parking system will also allow our enforcement team to digitally check if vehicles have a valid season ticket or permit without the need to see one on display.
When using a virtual parking permit only one vehicle registered to a season ticket can be parked at a time.
- You must ensure that the correct vehicle registration is active before leaving the vehicle in the car park
- For more information on virtual permits see Virtual Permit FAQs
