Lea Street parking permit

A resident parking permit scheme was introduced in Lea Street, Kidderminster on Friday 17 July 2020. It is designed to give residents and their visitors a better chance of parking close to where they live or are visiting.

Wyre Forest District Council is adminstering the scheme on behalf of Worcestershire County Council. We will be taking payments and issuing the permits, as well as enforcing the scheme.

Resident permits

Residents of Lea Street may buy a maximum of three residents permits and four visitor books. One book includes 80 visitor tickets with each ticket valid for six hours. A permit does not guarantee residents or visitors a parking space.

The resident permits cost £40 each annually with one visitor book costing £10. Please allow two working days for resident permits to be delivered. Visitor books will take longer to arrive.

There is a £10 fee for a replacement permit where there is a replacement vehicle.

  • Clear photographs of the following documents need to be attached to your application on My Wyre Forest.
    • The V5C Vehicle Registration Certificate (log book), showing your name and address.
    • Proof of residency for example, utility bill or council tax bill.
  • You must create a My Wyre Forest account to purchase a permit. You will get a reminder a week before your permit ends.
