Silver permits allow Mole Valley residents and small businesses (with 20 or less employees) to park in one town's (Ashtead, Bookham, Dorking and Leatherhead) Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) long stay car parks. The permit costs £675 per year.
Once a permit application has been completed the permit will be valid for 24 months and it will enable you to purchase permit parking sessions for 1, 3 or 12 month lengths. Please read the following permit terms and conditions before submitting your application.
Your virtual permit will be valid instantly and your parking session will be valid from the selected date. Silver permits are issued virtually so there is no need to display a paper permit in your vehicle; our Civil Enforcement Officers will know that your permit is active through their handheld devices when checking vehicles.
If you would like to apply for a Swan Centre permit (a pro-rata permit to cover selected days of the week, rather than a full week) or a Concessionary permit, email email@example.com.
