Commuter Parking Permit

Online - Commuter Parking Permit

You will require a valid credit or debit card.

Commuter permits can now be purchased and managed online by permit holders. Permits will no longer be posted out for displaying in vehicles, as the active vehicle details registered on your online account will be uploaded to the Civil Enforcement Officers handheld computer. You can register more than one vehicle on your online account and then nominate which vehicle you need to park, as and when required. It is important to ensure the vehicle you have parked is the vehicle active on your account.

You can now purchase, book and top-up your daily commuter sessions using the new online permit system using the link above. Once you have obtained the Commuter Daily Session Voucher Permit, you can then book your daily parking online. The booking will upload automatically to the Civil Enforcement Officers handheld computers and you will no longer need to display paper scratch cards.

There are two Commuter Zones within the Borough of Poole. There is one in the Civic Centre area (Zone G/H) and one at County Gates (Zone K). Permits are available to anybody who needs to park on the roads shown on the maps indicated below:
