Business parking permits

If you own a business and you live or work in one of the Grays town centre controlled parking zones or Stanford-le-Hope parking permit areas, you may be eligible to apply for a permit to park there.

This permit allows you to park your vehicle:

  • in a permit holders-only bay within the relevant zone or area
  • in a shared-use parking bay – this is a bay that can be used by parking permit holders and motorists who display a valid pay-and-display ticket
  • at the location for which you have a Thurrock Council permit to carry out works, as long as you don't cause a parking obstruction

Business parking permits are issued for 1 month, 6 months or 1 year. The charges are as follows.

Permit Cost
Business parking permit for 1 month £42
Business parking permit for 6 months £210
Business parking permit for 1 year £380
