Residents parking schemes

Wirral Council operates a number of residents parking schemes.

If you live within a parking scheme you can apply for a permit and for one visitor permit per household. Residents parking permits are not transferable. 

Tranmere Rovers Residents Association manages and operates its own visitor permit scheme. These are renewed each year. Residents in this scheme area will be contacted by their residents association who will annually provide visitor permits before the start of the football season.

Current resident parking zones

Apply for a new resident parking scheme

To apply for a resident parking scheme you must provide the addresses, names and contact details of each address willing to pay the set-up and annual permit fees.

To set-up a new scheme you will need a minimum of 300 properties with support from a minimum of 80%.


The set-up cost for 300 properties is estimated at £75 per property (one-off payment) and the annual permit fee is £10 per permit. If the proposal involves significantly fewer than 300 properties, the set-up cost will likely be higher.

All requests will be considered against established criteria and suitability of the proposed location.


The initiator should print and complete a parking scheme request form and distribute parking scheme criteria and support forms to residents included in the scheme.

All forms should be returned by post to the initiator of the proposal before submission to (building is not open to the general public):

Traffic and Transportation
Regeneration and Environment
