following a review of the situation regarding motorhomes enforcement and eligibility for permits, it has been decided that motorhomes are allowed to apply for a permit and use the permit bays to park, however, the existing length and weight conditions (i.e. not more than 3.5 tonnes laden or 1525kg unladen and less than 6m in length) will remain and will still apply to these vehicles. If your motorhome fits within the above criteria you may apply for a permit or continue using your existing permit. It is the applicants responsibility to ensure that the height and weight criteria is met.
All existing permits remain valid
Replacement permits and permits required as a result of a change in vehicle ownership will require an application for a new permit. The full permit charge will apply but the new permit will be valid for a further 12 months.
Please note – if you are a permit holder in the St Mark's area of Preston you will be unable to apply for a permit at this moment in time however your current permit will remain valid until you are contacted by the council.
Additionally, if you live in the Balfour Road area (QR1) please do not apply for a permit, the scheme is currently not enforceable and as such a permit is not required until you are contacted by the council.
