A permit is only required on specific event days as signposted on the zone entry signs. A list of these days can be found on our Twickenham event timetable.
The permit will need to be displayed in the vehicle during zone operation times.
Display the permit face up on the vehicle’s nearside dashboard, so that the details are clearly visible from the front or nearside of the vehicle. Permits must be displayed in the vehicle as soon as it is parked in a Twickenham event zone (R) parking place, within zone operation times.
A permit will not reserve the holder a right to park in a specific parking bay.
A permit will enable the holder to park in any vacant on-street business parking permit holder’s space, or if applicable, shared use space within the zone of issue between the hours displayed on signs at the entry points to the zone, and in some cases, on signs adjacent to the parking bays, subject to any parking suspension that may occur. Parking places are not controlled outside of the zones restricted hours.
Permits are only valid in the zone of issue as shown on the permit by a letter(s) in the bottom right hand corner and on-street by the same letter(s) on sign plates.
Twickenham event zone (R) business parking permits are not valid in off-street car parks, pay and display bays, or in other zones except where otherwise stated by signs at the locations.

The Council regularly suspends bays from normal use for various reasons (for example, house moves). Any unauthorised vehicles found parked in a suspended bay may be liable for a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN). If your visitor's vehicle is to remain in the same bay for a number of days then you should check daily for any suspension notices.
Trader parking permits are not valid in Twickenham event zone (R). Traders can use Twickenham event zone (R) business parking permit at the permit holder's discretion.

The permit will no longer be valid and anyone attempting to use the permit will be liable for a PCN. If requested, a new permit will be issued for the unused period of the original permit.
A charge of £10 will be made for the issue of a replacement permit, except when the permit was stolen and a police crime reference number is provided.
