As part of the West Sussex County Council Integrated Parking Strategy, new online on-street parking permits will come into operation in the Horsham District from 3 July 2023.

Digital (virtual) parking permits are already in place at many car parks across Horsham District, as well as in other areas of West Sussex, but from 3 July 2023 digital permits for Horsham's Controlled Parking Zones, including resident, visitor and trader permits, can be purchased.

The move to digital permits will mean there will be no need to display paper permits in vehicle windows - drivers can simply purchase the resident permit online and receive an email notification when it is active.

The virtual permits are provided by a system called MiPermit. This system enables customers to purchase and manage their parking permits online, 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week. MiPermit can be accessed through the Council’s website or by telephone. This will apply to both resident’s and visitor’s permits.

Residents without online access will still be able to request a paper application from Horsham District Council’s Parking Services team on 01403 215379. Once you have a MiPermit account, to purchase and activate visitor permits you will be able to call MiPermit’s dedicated call centre.

Digital Permits bring with them many benefits, including a reduced reliance on paper and plastic, the removal of waiting times for a physical permit to be delivered and greater convenience for customers by allowing them to be able to manage their parking needs at any time.
