Short stay parking permits are valid for up to 2 hours and must be used in conjunction with either a parking clock (no longer sent out) or visible note indicating time of arrival (return to the same car park within 1 hour is prohibited).

Cost

A 6 month permit costs £45. 

We are currently changing the way that we process resident, long stay and short stay parking permits in the Dorset area.  Short stay permits can no longer be purchased on-line.

Due to these changes we are only able to offer a maximum duration of 6 months from 1 November 2021.

To apply or renew a permit please contact parking services parking@dorsetcouncil.gov.uk.
