Mendip District Council are aware of the issues being experienced by our customers when attempting to purchase 3 day permits, under our new scheme of payment. We are working with our contractor to resolve these issues and we are confident that a resolution will be in place by 30 November. In the meantime, customers can purchase other forms of permits.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused in the delay of this provision.

Parking Permits

Mendip District Council offer several types of parking permits which are available to the general public, business users and residents subject to availability. Residents and Business Permits are available for periods of 6 months and 12 months. Season tickets are available for either 7 days a week and a 3 day a week option for periods of 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and 12 months.

How to apply for a season ticket, resident or business parking permit

With effect from October 2018 season tickets, residents permits and business permits are available for application, payment and administration online.

The new system for permit management has been used by our parking partner Somerset County Council for the purchase of resident permits across the County over the last year with great success. Season tickets, resident and business permits will become "virtual" as with your vehicle road fund licence. The County's enforcement officers will check the database to ensure the parked vehicle has a valid season ticket. This prevents penalties being received should you forget to display the season ticket or if it is obscured.

Please purchase or renew your season ticket, resident or business permit by following the link below:
