Parking permit - change of vehicle
Find out what you need to do if you change your vehicle to make sure your parking permits are still valid. This includes what to do if you are using a temporary vehicle.
Parking Permit centre
The Parking Permit centre at Hove Town Hall is closed.
Please use the online service and emails as these are unaffected. We aim to acknowledge your email within 7 working days. General enquiries can be sent to email@example.com
The parking services phone lines are open between 9am and 1pm. You can phone us on 01273 296 622.
Please be aware that there may be a long wait for calls to be answered.
Change of vehicle
If you have changed your vehicle, you must retain your parking permit.
Please do not apply for a new permit if you changed your vehicle.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with:
- permit number, this can be found on the bottom left corner of your permit
- full name
- phone number
- new vehicle details including vehicle registration mark, make, model and colour
- whether this is your new vehicle or if this is a temporary vehicle, like a courtesy vehicle
If you change your vehicle in the short term or have a courtesy car, we will email you a code, this will last for two weeks. You must write the code on your current permit and put it in the temporary vehicle.
Ideally the code would be written on the permit in pencil, so that you can erase it when your own car is returned to you. If your vehicle is returned to you before the code expires, you do not need to let us know, just erase the code and put the permit back in your car.
If you have a new permanent vehicle and your permit needs changing, we will generate a code that is valid for 14 days from the date it is issued to you.
This code will allow you to park in the permit bays in your parking zone. We will let the traffic wardens know, so you are still covered without the permit in your vehicle for two weeks.
During the 14 days you must return your permit to us so that we can update it.
