To ensure as many colleagues as possible have applied for their new virtual car parking permit for Huddersfield and Acre Mills, the deadline to apply has been extended to Thursday, 29th February.

Around 2,350 colleagues have registered with the Nexus system, but only 1,200 have continued to the next step and completed the permit application process.

Around 50% of colleagues still need to apply for their permit

Registering for an account in Nexus alone will not secure your permit. An application must also be made so that your CHFT details are logged and can be checked by our Car Parking Team.

They individually check each application. There are two elements of the application which are not always being completed correctly. This means the team are having to contact colleagues to check the information, which is causing delays in processing applications.

  • Please correctly enter your working pattern - you need to tell us whether you work full-time, part-time, rotational shifts or any of the other patterns listed.
  • Be sure on how you want to pay - colleagues who already have a permit should check their payslip before applying to get this section right. It will tell you if you are paying a net deduction (in the Tax, NI column) or through the salary sacrifice scheme (basic pay column). Salary sacrifice schemes are a way to pay for products through your salary, making savings by not paying tax or national insurance on the cost.

Waiting to hear back if you’ve applied - please be patient

If you have complete both steps of registering and applying and have an email from explaining your application is waiting for approval, please don’t contact the Car Parking Team. They will review your application in turn and be in touch if there are any queries, or when you permit is approved.

You can find the link to apply with lots more information on the intranet car parking pages.


Please be assured that no enforcement notices will be issued to existing and new permit holders until the Car Parking Team are confident that all interested colleagues have applied for their virtual permits.

Our security patrols are still walking the grounds. Colleagues will receive a Parking Control Notice if they park on double yellow lines, hatchings or block entrances that are needed for vehicle access, as our terms and conditions for parking have not changed.
