My road has parking restrictions. Where do I get a permit to park there?

We are not responsible for on-street parking. If you need a permit to park on a road, contact Cumbria County Council

Many of the streets in Allerdale are disc parking. This means you can park for free for a limited amount of time (usually one hour). This is provided, and enforced, by Cumbria County Council. You will need to display a disc which you can get for free from many local shops or our customer service centres.
