Rent a parking space or garage

Some Watford residents who can't park near their property rent a parking space or garage from the council. 

The number of parking spaces and garages is very limited, and we currently have a full waiting list.  When spaces on the waiting list become available there will be an application form on this page.

If you live in a controlled parking zone (CPZ), see if you're eligible for a parking permit.

The price of a parking space or garage varies depending on location.

How to apply for a residential parking space or garage

Demand is extremely high.  All parking spaces, garages and their waiting lists are currently full.  When spaces have become vacant and the waiting lists have reduced we will republish our online form for waiting list applications.

If you already rent a parking space or garage

If you already rent a parking space or garage you can let us know about a change of vehicle, terminate the contract or report an issue online.

If you have received a parking fine in error while parking in your allocated space, please contact the company who issued the fine directly for assistance.
