Leisure centre permit

Coronavirus (COVID-19): change to service

Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have made changes to parking restrictions in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole. Most public car parks are now open.

Valid permits and season tickets were extended for April, but you should now renew them if you need to.

See further information about changes to services.


We use an online system for purchasing a parking permit. By using the system you will no longer receive a physical permit, instead receiving a virtual permit. 

Permits can be shared between two vehicles however cannot be used at the same time. The virtual permit system can register when the permit is being used fraudulently. If this is found to be the case your permit will be cancelled and no refund issued.

Please ensure you enter the correct registration number into the system - particular care should be taken when entering 0 (zero, the number) and O (the letter). Mistakes will result in the issue of a Penalty Charge Notice.

We also have permits for the parking of heavy commercial, public service and goods vehicles - please contact us if you have any queries.

Please note

Buying a permit does not guarantee that a space will be available. At certain times of the year we reserve the right to grant free parking or to close car parks (for example in the case of essential maintenance or a special event).

No refund of the permit fee will be made in respect of such periods.

There is a two metre height restriction in Leisure Centre (West) and 1.95m in Leisure Centre (East) car park
