Virtual RingGo Permits

Residents are now able to buy virtual permits by using the RingGo website and app.

Permits can be brought for three, six or 12 months and can be used in most of the council-owned car parks. Prices will be available on the RingGo website and discounts will apply in some instances. 

What's changed

Paperless permits can be purchased with the following benefits:

  • you will be able to check your permit online (you will no longer receive a paper one)
  • you can log in using a mobile phone or email account to apply for a permit online – it's quick and simple to create an account
  • you will be issued with a permit as soon as your application is approved, meaning you won't have to wait up
  • when the electronic permit is getting near its expiry date, we'll send you a reminder by email

These changes affect all types of parking permits in Havant Borough Council’s pay and display parking zones - except Beachlands, Hayling Island. 

As soon as your permit is issued, its details will become available to our Civil Enforcement Officers out on the streets. Our officers have hand-held computers that can scan the registration numbers of vehicles in parking permit areas. The computers will tell them whether a valid permit is associated with the vehicle.

Already have a parking permit?

If you already have a paper parking permit that is valid, you don't need to do anything. It will continue to be valid until its expiry date. 

Season tickets (Paper permits)

Season tickets are available to purchase on a 3 month, 6 month or annual basis to enable you to park within the town centre car parks.  These permits allow for two vehicles to be registered and transferred across.  Only one vehicle can display the permit at any time. 

Resident permits

Resident permits are now issued by Hampshire County Council.
