Daily Visitor Scratch Cards

Residents in Bradford on Avon can use daily visitor scratch cards when visitors need to park in a residents' parking zone. Visitors include visiting tradesmen and delivery people (e.g. builders, plumbers and electrical appliance deliveries). Daily visitor scratch cards are valid for up to one day if the relevant date, day, month and year are correctly scratched off.

You can also display a correctly validated visitor scratch card if you are waiting for an updated resident’s parking permit. If you have a visitor's daily scratch card but have not displayed it properly, you cannot use this as a reason to appeal a parking ticket (penalty charge notice). Please make sure that daily visitor scratch cards are correctly validated and displayed as soon as a visitor’s car is parked.

We do not issue visitor scratch cards issue to businesses. They can only be used by residents and their visitors.

Scratch cards come in books of 10 and can not be split.

Number of scratch cards Cost per book of 10
10 - 50 £4
