Residents in the West Dorset District Council area have been able to purchase a Shoppers Permit.  Shoppers Permits allow 2 hours parking (limited to one use per day) or 3 hours parking if a disabled badge is also displayed. At extra cost to the purchaser, it can be used in in a second vehicle but not on the same day.

With the new Dorset Council covering the whole Dorset area, having the Shoppers Permit available in just part of the area is not fair. Therefore, the future of the shoppers permit is under review. We would like your views on whether it should be made available to the whole Dorset Council area or should be withdrawn.

The consultation ends on midnight on the 6 December 2020. Your views are important to help us decide the future of the Shoppers Permit. The survey will take approximately 5 minutes to complete.
