One temporary parking cover is granted free of charge per calendar year and is valid for a maximum period of two weeks.

You can apply for temporary parking cover:

  • If you have a loan car while your usual vehicle has been garaged for repairs
  • While you apply to transfer your permit to a new vehicle or address within another Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) or sub-zone

Temporary parking cover is not issued on expired permits.

This period of free cover is not extendable and any unused days cannot be 'banked' for future use. A charge will apply for any further periods of temporary cover.
