Resident Parking Permits

On-street resident parking permit scheme

Please note: personal data will be collected in order to facilitate the Resident Permit scheme. Data will be collected in accordance with our Privacy Notice.

West Berkshire Council operates on-street permit parking in Icon for doc specific residential zones and roads [48KB] where parking is in high demand. The scheme enables residents to purchase parking permits which allow them to park in sections set aside for permit holders.

We use a virtual permit system, provided by the MiPermit portal.


In order to register an account at a property within the scheme, you will need the property's unique Council Tax Property reference number, which you can find on your Council Tax bill.

If you live in, or are about to move to, a property that falls within the scheme, please apply for a virtual permit on the MiPermit website or call 0345 520 7007.


Residents permits have an annual fee of £30, except in Hungerford High Street and Park Terrace, Newbury, where the fee is £70.

Residential parking guidelines

Our guidelines for residential parking state that:

  • converted or newly built properties are not eligible to be part of the scheme
  • a maximum of two parking permits per household can be issued where no off-street parking is available
  • it is the resident's responsibility to renew their parking permit - a text or email reminder will be sent automatically by the virtual system before your existing permit expires
