Ultra-low emission vehicle permits

We have introduced a permit scheme to allow free parking for Ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs) in Leeds city centre. 


Only vehicles on the Department for Transport list recognised as ULEV for their plugged-in grant scheme will qualify for the scheme. 

Currently, the ULEV free parking permit scheme is limited to Leeds residents only.

Where to use the permit

Display your permit to park for free in the following locations:

Maximum stay restrictions will still apply along with all other restrictions, such as yellow lines, disabled spaces, and loading bays. Failure to adhere to the rules may result in a parking ticket.


Once we have received your application, we will post your permit to you within 28 days. 

The permit will allow you to park for free until 31 March 2020. 


The quickest and easiest way to apply is online. You must provide a copy of your vehicle registration certificate (V5C), which you can scan and upload online or post to us.
