Ludlow residents' digital parking scheme

Please note the application process for Residents’ Parking Permits in Ludlow changed on 19 November 2018.

Residents with an address on any of the eligible streets are entitled to apply for a digital residents on/off-street or visitors parking permit, subject to availability. We've also published a map showing the qualifying areas of the town. 

On-street residents' parking permits

A residents' on-street parking scheme operates in permitted areas of Ludlow. Each eligible household is entitled to one permit with one vehicle registered at any one time which allows you to park within a designated on-street parking bay without restriction.

A permit does not guarantee you a parking space within the designated on street parking bay, nor will it guarantee that you'll be able to park directly in front of your property.

Ludlow is divided into two areas, the red central area and the blue outer area.

Off-street residents' parking permits

As of 19 November 2018, a residents' off-street parking scheme operates in Ludlow Galdeford Zone A (Upper), Galdeford Zone B (Lower) and Smithfield car parks. Each eligible household is entitled to apply for permits with one vehicle registered at any one time.  A permit allows you to park within a designated car park without restriction.  There is no limit to the amount of permits that can be purchased by eligible householders.  However, there is a maximum number of permits available for each of the car parks, see below.  Once this maximum has been reached, no further permits will be available until such a time as a permit expires or is cancelled. 

Digital permits for these car parks are not valid for parking on-street or for any other car park other than your chosen designated car park. There is a limited number of permits available at each designated car park, and these are as follows:

  • Galdeford Zone A (Upper) – 32 residents permits
  • Galdeford Zone B (Lower)- 64 residents permits
  • Smithfield - 31 residents permits

A digital permit won't guarantee you a parking space within the car park.

On-Street Digital Visitor Permits

As of 19 November 2018, residents in Ludlow can have 200 hours free parking for visitors instead of visitor scratch cards which are no longer available.  These hours are free if selected when purchasing a Ludlow on-street residents’ permit. 

For those households that are eligible to have a residents permit but do not require a residents on-street permit, can purchase 200 hours for visitors parking for £5.  See the Apply Now button below.

A permit does not guarantee you a parking space within the designated bay, nor will it guarantee that you'll be able to park directly in front of your property.  Lack of free spaces will not be accepted as a reason to park in any unauthorised parking area.
