Residents’ Parking

You can apply for a residents’ parking permit for the Horsecliffe Lane parking area (behind Chadwick Park and Mermond Place car park) if you live in Swanage or other Purbeck villages and environs.

Horsecliffe Lane is reserved for residents only, however a residents’ permit also allows you to park for two hours at Main Beach and Mermond Place (Recreation Ground) car parks.

The maximum number of hours’ stay still applies.

  • Seasonal cost – Residents’ parking is free in low season (November – March inclusive), with a small charge during high season
  • Price of permit – You simply need to pay a one-off admin fee of £5 to Swanage Town Council, and submit a copy of your council tax bill and vehicle registration document

To apply for a parking permit visit Swanage Town Council’s website:
