3. Bronze Parking Permits

Bronze permits are available to those who work in Mole Valley and are classified as a low paid worker and Mole Valley residents who would like to park during off-peak hours (Monday to Friday, 8 – 9am, 5 – 6pm and all day on Saturdays). Parking remains free from 6pm to 8am on weekdays and on Sundays. You must select one Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) long stay car park when applying. Permits cost £175 per year.

Once a permit application has been completed the permit will be valid for 12 months and it will enable you to purchase permit parking sessions for 1, 3 or 12 month lengths. Please read the 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. Bronze 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.
