Filed under: Latest news — ckeitch @ 10:40 am

How to apply

Register your vehicle online.

Unlike in previous years, permits do not automatically roll over so you must re-register in order to have a parking permit for 2019/20.

Please note:

  • You can register a maximum of two vehicles per staff member.
  • Please ensure the vehicle registration is entered correctly with no spaces (a common inputting error is a zero 0 being entered instead of the letter O or vice versa).
  • You can find details of the various parking options in the Fees and payment section of our website.
  • Please make sure you register for parking and adhere to our updated Terms and Conditions.
  • Number plates are checked by our parking enforcement team. If your car isn’t registered the visitor parking rates apply.
  • For all Occasional or General permit holders, parking is pay-on-arrival.
  • All permits for 2018/19 expire on 30 September.
  • Enforcement of non-registered vehicles and non-payment of daily charges will resume Monday 14 October.

Reserved parking spaces

Reserved parking spaces are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. To reserve yours register your vehicle online, selecting the ‘reserved permit’ option.

Changes to parking fees for 2019/20

Parking fees for some types of permits have increased slightly. Please see our Fees and payment to find out more.

Rules and regulations

Parking Charge Notices remain at £20. This will be reduced to £10 if the charge is paid within 14 days.

Changes to the rules and regulations for driving, parking and registering vehicles for our Colchester Campus can be found on our staff parking page.
