Contractors' parking permits
A contractor working within a controlled parking zone

A contractor working at business premises within a disc zone can also apply for a Contractor's Permit.
Parking the vehicle
It is the responsibility of the driver to ensure that a vehicle is parked correctly and that an appropriate permit is clearly displayed in the windscreen. If an appropriate permit is not clearly displayed, this may result in the issue of a Penalty Charge Notice.
How to apply for a Contractor's Permit
Contractors who need to discuss on-street parking permit arrangements in close proximity to the work they are carrying out should contact the parking team at Cumbria County Council.
Emergency call outs
Contractors may be subject to emergency call outs and require parking at short notice. A visitor permit should be used in these circumstances. If a visitor permit is not available, contractors need to contact the parking team at Cumbria County Council.
