Residential Permit Parking Districts (RPPD)

Residential Permit Parking Districts (RPPDs) help prevent traffic congestion and hazardous conditions in residential areas, provide easier parking access to residences fronting public streets, and preserve residential character and property values in Loudoun County.

You must have a parking permit decal or short-term visitor pass to park in an RPPD during the designated hours as per Chapter 490 of the Loudoun County Code of Ordinances.

RPPD Parking Portal

Use the RPPD Parking Portal to apply for, or to purchase parking permit decals and short-term visitor passes. First time visitors to the portal must sign up and apply for a parking permit prior to purchase, see "Apply for permits" from the menu below for details. 

  • In-person purchasing and assistance with RPPD decals is currently suspended due to COVID-19 social distancing protocols. You may continue to use the RPPD parking portal to purchase decals and visitor passes. 
  • With U.S. Mail delivery expected to slow and the upcoming holiday office closures, please plan ahead to purchase your parking permit decal.

County signs are posted in Residential Permit Parking Districts and display the designated hours a permit or short-term visitor pass is required for parking.
