Resident's parking permit

Page updated on: 29/04/2022

A residents parking scheme has been introduced to the following towns, Ammanford, Carmarthen, Llanelli, Llandeilo and Llandovery. If you live in the zones made available for residents parking you can apply for a permit. 

Permits are available to those people who reside in the residents zones and are valid for 12 months. You should be aware, however, that a permit does not guarantee you a place to park your vehicle - it only gives you permission to do so in the appropriate zone, if space is available. This permission only applies during the period of validity of your permit and from Monday to Saturday, 8am-6pm.

A permit does not allow you to park on:

  • yellow lines during their time of operation
  • in the one hour limited waiting areas for longer than one hour.

We reserve the right to refuse or withdraw permits for households found to be abusing the scheme.

Below is a summary of the scheme, the types of permits available, proof required, any conditions and costs.

To apply for a permit or ask a question please email us.

Resident motor vehicles under 2 tonne unladen weight and/or 5.3 metres (17’ 4”) in length or with a maximum of 8 passenger seats. (Includes LPG or electric vehicles).

  • Maximum 2 permits per household
  • £30 per permit. LPG or electric vehicles free.
  • Two proofs of residency required and proof that you are entitled to drive the vehicle.

If you lose, damage or destroy your permit or change your vehicle and require a new permit, you will need to make a fresh application along with the relevant proofs and any payment. Any replacement permits issued will be valid for 12 months from its issue date. In the case of a change of vehicle, you will need to surrender your current permit. The charge is to cover the administration cost involved with producing a new permit.

If you change address you should return your permit(s) to us for cancellation. Please send your permit(s) to:

Carmarthenshire County Council
Parking Services
SA31 3WR

This is an important part of maintaining the parking permit scheme since until you return your permit(s), we will not be able to issue permit(s) to the new occupiers.

If you have just moved in then you should supply the proofs mentioned in the "Apply for a permit" section. If you move to another permit parking zone you will need to apply for a permit for the new zone. This will require the completion of a new application form, submission of the correct proofs and any payment. Please ensure that you surrender the permit(s) applicable to your former address.
