How to register and apply for a trade permit

You will need to register an account before you are able to apply for and activate permits.

Before purchasing a permit you will need to submit the address where you plan to carry out work, which then must be approved by the council. 

By default, you are only able to cover 3 vehicles per day. Should the work require more than 3 vehicles per day, you will need to write to parkingpermits@wandsworth.gov.uk separately, requesting additional vehicles and giving reasons why this is necessary.

You will need to apply for separate trade permits for each job located in a Wandsworth Controlled Parking Zone

If your application is approved, you will be able to purchase paperless permits and activate cover.
