Controlled Parking Zones

Information and guidance relating to the application process for on-street permits in the controlled parking zones in Shepway

Shepway District Council introduced parking zones to areas of Folkestone in November 2009.  Further controlled parking zones were introduced in September 2012 to allow more parking for visitors and residents and reduce commuters parking on the street. 

How it works

The controlled parking zones are intended to protect local residents parking during the scheme operational hours, but does not necessarily guarantee a parking space. 

The holder of a resident or business permit is allowed to park in designated permit holder bays during the scheme's operational hours. Residents may purchase visitor permits for their visitors. Permits apply only to the designated zones shown on the permit.

Blue badge holders are allowed to park their vehicle without the need for a permit provided that a valid disabled persons' badge is displayed.
