Businesses which operate from eligible business premises in a controlled parking zone (CPZ) may apply to the council to purchase a business parking permit.
If you are a student moving into a controlled parking zone (CPZ) and require a parking permit your vehicle must be registered in your name and at the Oxford address. A vehicle registration certificate (V5C) will be required to support your application.
Being the named driver on an insurance policy will not qualify you for a parking permit.
Applications must also be supported with official proof of your residency such as your fully signed termed tenancy agreement (should be signed by yourself, the letting agency and witnessed) or your Council Tax student exemption certificate or a recently dated utility bill or financial statement.
