Hotel & Guest House Permits

Important message for Existing Permit Holders

If you have an existing permit which you purchased from Norwich City Council this will need renewing on the Parking Operations system hosted by MiPermit.

If you gave Norwich City Council an email address or phone number when you applied for your permit this will have enabled us to set up an account with MiPermit on your behalf.  Please follow the instructions on our Using MiPermit page to renew your permit(s) or access your account.

Hotel & Guest House Digital Permits

Business rated properties

Permits are available to hotels and guest houses with business rated premises outside the city centre parking zone.

Please be aware that many, more recently constructed properties are not eligible for permits.

If your permit scheme was introduced after July 2004, only properties that were occupied at implementation are entitled to permits. Conversions and subdivisions of older properties are considered to be ‘recently constructed’.

Up to three business user permits are available for the first five letting bedrooms, and then one permit for each set of up to five additional bedrooms.

Airbnb/short-term lets

Properties outside of the city centre parking zones that operate as an Airbnb or short-term let may apply for one guest house permit.


Please contact to find out if your property is eligible for this type of permit.  You will need to supply the full property address including post code in your email.

Permit Cost

  • Permit duration– you can have a permit for any period between 1 and 18 months.
  • Calculate the cost– the permit fee is calculated by multiplying the £14.80 monthly enforcement charge by the number of months required and then adding the £16.60 admin charge.
