Eastleigh Residents parking scheme

Top tip - the easiest way to manage your MiPermit account is to download the MiPermit App

In some areas of Eastleigh and Chandler's Ford we operate a parking scheme for residents.  In September 2019 we introduced a digital permit scheme.

Resident permits

Each household can apply for a maximum of two permits, a third permit may be issued at the discretion of the Council if off-street parking can't practically be provided at the property.

New on-street resident parking permit charges

On-street parking, including Civil Parking Enforcement, is the responsibility of Hampshire County Council (as the Highway Authority) and Eastleigh Borough Council have operated this service on the County Council’s behalf for a number of years.

As part of the County Council’s proposals to modernise on-street parking, it has taken back the on-street parking service in a number of districts across Hampshire. Eastleigh Borough Council have, however, entered into a new agreement with the County Council to be able to continue to deliver the service from 1 April 2020 onwards.

Residential Parking Schemes are costly to operate, manage and maintain and therefore it’s very important they operate on a full cost recovery basis so that they are not subsidised by the wider council tax payer. Therefore, Hampshire County Council introduced changes to resident permit charges across Hampshire with the introduction of a minimum £50 charge for the first permit within each household.

However, the Borough Council, in consultation with the County Council agreed transitional arrangements to minimise the impact for Eastleigh residents, with permit prices increasing incrementally each year from 2020 to achieve the minimum £50 charge.

Permit charges from 1 April 2022:

1st Permit - £50
2nd Permit - £100
3rd Permit - £200. Please download and complete an Inspection Application Form and return it to Eastleigh Borough Council with the required non-refundable administration fee of £25.

Visitor permits

If you live within a controlled zone, you will be entitled to a number of free visitor parking permits. These allow your visitors to park in designated residents’ parking bays near to your home. Visitor permits allow all day parking in designated Residents' Parking bays, but are not valid in Limited Waiting bays or Pay & Display bays (including shared use bays).  The number of permits you will receive depends on the number of adults (aged 18 and over) in your household and the parking zone you live in.
