Virtual Permits

Cotswold District Council now issues resident’s permits and visitor permits via a virtual permit scheme. You can purchase these online or over the phone by calling 0845 319 4859. You will need to set up a permit account before buying your permits.

Please follow the online instructions here, or apply by telephone and someone will talk you through the process.

You will need to know your address, council tax number, and the registration number of any vehicles you wish to purchase permits for.
