Care attendant permit
This type of permit can be issued to organisations or companies that provide care so their staff can park in residents parking bays when calling on clients to provide care.
In this case, a care attendant is someone looking after a resident's physical wellbeing by doing things like personal care, cooking and cleaning for them, in situations where they need to be at the resident's home.
The application form must be filled in by a manager in the company/ organisation that employs the carer. A charge of £25.00 is made for each permit.
The permit is valid in resident parking bays or limited waiting bays where permits are allowed. It is NOT for use on other waiting restrictions or in the City Centre Pedestrian Zone or in Pay and Display Car Parks. The permit may be used only for a visit to a client in their own home and, for example, it should not be used to park a vehicle near the carer's office. Misuse of a care attendant permit will result in its withdrawal.
Permits are not issued for vehicles over 3,500 kg maximum gross weight or vehicles that are more than 2.35m high and 5.35m long (roughly Transit van size). The permit is not transferable and remains the property of the City and County of Swansea. If a permit is lost or destroyed, a charge of £25 will be made for a replacement.
