Resident's parking scratchcards

On 1 April the single new council for North Yorkshire launched replacing Scarborough Borough Council and other local authorites in North Yorkshire.

To find your Councillor or to view minutes, meetings and agendas please visit the North Yorkshire Council website.

Scratch cards cost 20 pence each and a maximum of 50 can be issued per household per calendar year.

They allow any visitor to park all day with a correctly validated scratchcard on display within their vehicle.

If you live in a shared house or flat that is registered as a “House of Multiple Occupancy” (HMO) you can apply for scratch cards. You should nominate one person as “Head of the Household” who can apply for the maximum number of permits allowed (50) on behalf of everyone who lives there.

How to apply


You can purchase scratchcards online when you renew or apply for a resident's parking permit.
