Residents Parking Scheme

Change of Vehicle

Please contact us preferably before you take possesion of your new vehicle.

If your current permit is still valid you are eligible to obtain a permit for the new vehicle free of charge for the remaining period originally purchased provided:

  • The current permit for the old vehicle is returned to Kettering Borough Council, customer services
  • A complete application form is submitted
  • The new vehicle Insurance Schedule or DVLA log book or at the discretion of Kettering Borough Council, proof of purchase showing your name and address may be accepted.

If the old permit is not returned, it will be treated as a lost permit and a £5.00 administration fee will be payable. 

If your permit is due to expire within 1 month we may decide to process the change as the annual renewal of the permit (annual fee applicable).

How to apply:

Download an application form

Take the form, old permit and vehicle document to our customer service centre at the Kettering Borough Council Offices. 

Please note that even though you hold a residents parking permit your new vehicle is not eligible to be parked in the residents parking area until a permit is displayed. 

Alternatively, you may email the application and documents but the permit must be handed into the Council Offices.  Outside of office hours there is a post box that can be used to return your permit however, please put the permit in an envelope marked with your reason for return, name, address and contact number.
