From March 1 Bromsgrove District Council will be scrapping paper permits for anyone wanting to purchase a parking permit for pay and display long-stay car parks.

From this date, all new and renewal applications will be directed to the MiPermit system where they can create an account, manage, and pay for their permit online.

Current paper permits will continue to be valid until they expire, at which point those wishing to renew their permits will need to do so virtually. Paper permits are expected to be phased out completely by December this year.

The parking permits apply to North Bromsgrove, School Drive, Stourbridge Road, New Road and Parkside car parks.

Leader of Bromsgrove Council, Cllr Karen May, said: “We’ve already seen great success with the Mi Permit app for day-to-day parking charges so I’m really pleased that our season pass holders will have the same option for contactless payment, especially given the ongoing pandemic.

“Not only does it mean that it is easier for the public to pay for their permits, alter their details if they get a new car, and access the system from the comfort of their own home, but it also helps us reduce our carbon footprint as a council, with less single use paper and plastic in the system. We’re taking steps towards adapting our services so that they are fit for the future.”

This upgrade to the permit system is part of an ongoing program to modernise parking in Bromsgrove.

In addition to the flexibility of managing permits online, any users who have an issue with their permit can call the council’s Customer Support Team for additional help during the day or use the Mi Permit helpdesk.

If you require any additional support or advice to set up your permit, then please contact the Customer Support Team on 01527 881288.
More information about the parking permits is available on the council website.

The virtual permits will be available from 1 March 2021.
