Households in The Hague with 2 or more cars in a neighbourhood with paid parking will start paying less in 2015.

The rate for the residential parking permit for second and subsequent cars is being slashed in half.

The rate is being reduced from € 420 to € 210 per year. This new regulation was passed by the Municipal Council. The rate reduction will take effect on the date the parking permit is due to be extended.

29 January 2015,

Starting on 1 January 2015 parking wardens in The Hague will scan the number plates of parked cars to check whether they have a residential parking permit. This means that parking permit holders no longer need to display their parking pass behind the windscreen of the car.

Do you have a resident’s parking permit? Make sure the municipality has the correct number plate for your car(s) on file.

Parking wardens will now check the number plate to see if the car is parked in the correct paid parking zone. Have you purchased a new car or are you driving another car temporarily?  Any changes to the number plate should be communicated to the municipality on time. You can inform the municipality about a change to the number plate of your car 24 hours a day. Go to Switch the number plate on your parking permit.

You will receive a letter from the Municipality of The Hague around the time that your residential parking permit is due to be extended.
