Municipality of Meerssen: applying for a parking permit

Do you live or work in an area with paid parking or parking for permit holders? Then ask the municipality for a parking permit.

You can park freely with a parking permit for the paid parking zone in the center of Meerssen. In that case you do not have to pay. However, there are rules that you must adhere to. There are rules for:

  • residents
  • businesses
  • users of an incidental permit (which may not be used all the time, but may be used occasionally)
  • first-line assistance (such as an ambulance or a general practitioner)
  • employees of the municipality

You can read all the rules in 'Rules for parking permits in the paid parking zone of the municipality of Meerssen'.

People with a disabled parking card can apply for a disabled parking space on the number plate at the house. This is also possible outside the Meerssen paid parking zone. You can apply for this with the application form Disabled parking space on license plate.

The documents that you need will depend on your situation.

You own your car

If your car is registered in your name, you do not need to submit any additional documents. The municipality checks your address and the license plate during the application process.

Leased or rented cars

Is your name stated in the lease contract? If so, you must attach the lease contract or rental agreement.

If your name is not stated in the contract, you must attach the following to your application:

  • A copy of a payslip, no more than 2 months old. If you do not have a payslip yet, a  copy of your employment contract.
