Contractors who need to park within controlled parking zones or permit parking areas while working on contracts with Thurrock Council, may be eligible for a contractor parking permit.
This permit allows contractors to park their vehicle for up to 3 hours in a permit holders only bay within the zone or area. They can also park for up to 3 hours 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.
This permit does not give the right to park in any parking place, and cannot be used to park on single or double yellow lines within the zone or area.
Contractor permits are only valid for the duration of the contract and must not be used for any purpose other than while work on contracts with Thurrock Council.
The first purchase fee and on-going fee for a contractor parking permit is £165 per year – the permit expires every year and will need to be replaced.
