If you live in the controlled parking zones (CPZs) in Grays town centre or Stanford-le-Hope, or the permit parking area in South Ockendon, you may be eligible for a resident parking permit.
You may also be eligible to apply for short-stay visitor parking permits to enable your visitors' or trades persons' vehicles to park in the zone or area.
Visitor parking permits are issued in sheets, each enabling 20 visits of up to 5 hours to be made. Up to 5 sheets can be purchased per calendar month.
The first sheet of visitor parking permits is free, after which the cost is £6.50 per sheet.
You can also apply for a visiting carers parking permit.
