Frequently Asked Questions

Can I still have three vehicles on my permit? 

Yes you can. The system will allow you to swap the vehicle through the online account.  Please note only 1 vehicle can be parked on site at a time and it must show as the 'Active' vehicle on your permit.


Will I have anything to display?

No, the new system will know that your vehicle has a valid permit. The Civil Enforcement Officers will scan your vehicle registration which will show them whether there is a valid permit.

What happens if I get a new vehicle?

You can transfer the permit to your new vehicle. To do so you will need to log in to your online account and change the vehicle registration. Once this is approved  you will be sent a payment request for the £5 administration fee.

Can I apply for a permit at the Harbour Office?

The Harbour Office staff will no longer accept paper applications. You can only apply and pay online through the Thanet Council website.

Will my permit be valid straight away?

Only car park season discs will be valid straight away. Any other permit will need to be approved. You should receive notification of this approval within two working days.

I no longer need my permit, what should I do?

You can cancel this on your account and we will process the cancellation. Please note, as per our fees and charges, fees paid are non-refundable.
