Permit eligibility / validity

A permit does not give the holder a right to park outside their home or guarantee that any parking space will be available.

Permits are only valid for the vehicle for which they are issued. If you change your vehicle, even for a short time, you must amend your permit on the website before re-parking or you may be liable to a Penalty Charge Notice. Please allow one hour for a change, although often the time for the permit change to become active is much shorter than this.

Permits are only valid until the expiry date confirmation as provided upon completion of purchase. Vehicles parked with an expired permit may be issued a Penalty Charge Notice. You will be sent a reminder notice before it expires, however it remains the keeper’s responsibility to ensure there is a valid permit for the vehicle parked.

Where to use

A Service Area permit will be issued to the vehicle selected and will only be valid in permit holders only bay. A permit does not give any concession to park on yellow lines or any other restrictions.


A permit holder who cancels a permit will be entitled to a pro rata refund for the remaining full months left on the permit.

Termination of a permit

Surrey Heath Borough Council reserves the right to cancel a parking permit at any time but will provide in writing an explanation of its decision.


On-street parking is a scarce resource, and the Council has a responsibility to ensure that permits are obtained genuinely. To that end, the Council takes very seriously any case where someone dishonestly obtains or attempts to obtain a permit to which they are not entitled. Regular checks are made to protect against permits being obtained dishonestly, including by false statements or forgery, and the Council will consider legal action, which may include criminal prosecution, in cases where it appears this has happened.


It is a contravention of the relevant Traffic Regulation Order to park (without proper cause) in a marked bay without having a valid permit in place. The current Penalty Charge for a contravention is £70.
