Businesses urged to apply for Games Local Access Parking Permit

From Thursday 28 July until Monday 8 August 2022, Birmingham will proudly host the Commonwealth Games in venues across the city and wider region.

Properties and/or businesses within a Commonwealth Games ‘event zone’ where traffic management and parking controls will be in place are being contacted to apply now for your Local Access Parking Permit (LAPPs). These temporary restrictions are to protect residents and businesses and support the operation of venues during the Games.

All residents and businesses within an event zone will need to apply for LAPPs which allow both access and parking and should be displayed in vehicle windscreens. The permits will make it easier to pass through marshal check points during the Games.
