Parking Permits for Carers
Central Bedfordshire Council issue permits to residents (who live where there are residents’ parking zones in operation) and who have carers visiting them regularly. This means that the carer can park in a “residents only” bay by displaying the permit the resident obtains in their vehicle for the duration of their stay. They return the permit to the resident when they leave. This applies to paid and unpaid carers.
