Residents and Disabled Parking

Residents Parking

All residents of Amber Valley will have been sent one Residents Free Parking Permit which allows free parking from 4pm until 8am the following morning (10am in Heanor) & any time during 18th – 27th December Christmas period.

Maximum stays still apply.

Enhanced permits are available that also provide free Sunday parking.

Over 60’s permits are available that also provide free Sunday parking and Tuesdays and Thursdays after 2pm.

To obtain an Enhanced or Over 60’s permit you can either:

  • pay online.
  • take your vehicle registration document and a utility bill along with an administration fee of £2 (plus proof of age for over 60’s) in person at Ripley Town Centre Office.


Conditions of Use

Remember to display the permit clearly and in a prominent position in the front windscreen of the vehicle. Failure to do so may result in a Penalty Charge Notice being issued to your vehicle.

All other regulations as detailed on the car park signage must be observed.

Should you be unable to display the permit (i.e. lost or damaged) a normal pay and display ticket must be purchased until a replacement permit is issued.

Should the details on your permit change (i.e. change of vehicle) a replacement permit can be obtained from Ripley Town Centre Office for a fee. Please remember to submit your old permit and take your vehicle registration document along with an administration fee of £2 when requesting any changes.

One permit is allowed per registered keeper of the vehicle.

Only one vehicle registration number is allowed on each permit.


The first Permit obtained using the application form and any additional or replacement Permits are at a charge of £2 each.

Disabled Parking

Amber Valley do not charge disabled Blue Badge holders to park, however when parking they must adhere to the regulations relating to the car parks i.e: short stay - (check signage for more details) - must be parked in a marked bay not necessarily a disabled bay.
