    I have a Vehicle Parking Certificate (VPC) issued by URA. Do I have to inform URA if I secure an alternative parking place for my vehicle ?

    Yes, if the VPC issued by URA is still valid. When you notify us, you will need to produce the following documents:

    •  The original VPC issued by URA. Under the Parking Places (Parking of Heavy Vehicles), you will be guilty of an offence if you do not return the VPC to us for cancellation.
    •  The VPC issued by the operator of the new parking place. This is to prove that the vehicle is parked at an authorised parking place.
