Carers Permits

You are here

A Carers Permit enables statutory care providers to park in Permit Holders Only bays in Ipswich’s on-street Resident Permit Zones when visiting a client. Please note that Carers Permits are not valid for visiting a permanent place of work (e.g. office or surgery).

The following statutory services care providers can apply for a Carers Permit:

  • Medical practitioners, nurses and midwives for the purpose of visiting a patient in his or her home
  • Vehicles being used in connection with the statutory functions of a local authority
  • The Voluntary Welfare Organisation or the Suffolk Probation Service visiting people in their homes in order to provide them with a service
  • Registered care provider

An administration fee of £15 will be charged to process each permit application.  Carers Permits are valid for 12 months.

Please note: If you are applying from an unrecognised, or personal email address, or non-corporation postal address, we may need you to provide further evidence in support of your application, such as a copy of a staff badge or similar, when any such application is made. Any applications received without supporting evidence may be rejected.
