Residents of Fort William, Inverness and Nairn who need to renew or apply for a Highland Council parking permit must now do so using an online application form.

Following suspension of residents’ parking permits during the coronavirus lockdown, Highland Council resumed the service from Monday September 14.

Residents who are eligible for a parking permit will be able to renew or apply for permits through the council’s new online self-service portal at where details on permit zones and terms and conditions can also be found.

This move to an entirely online permit service is necessary as a result of Scottish Government and UK Government’s advice to minimise social contact.

The council had to take the difficult decision to close all service points and they remain currently unavailable for in-person visits.

Anyone who does not have access to the internet should seek assistance from family or friends in accessing the online portal.

Any temporary permit arrangements will be withdrawn by November 1 this year.
