Q)Do I need to display a permit in a residents zone on public and bank holidays? 

If the zone that you live in requires a permit on a Sunday then you will be required to display a permit on a public and bank holiday. if your zone is only operating Monday to Friday or Monday to Saturday you will not be required to display a permit on public and bank holidays. 

Permits are not required on Christmas Day and New Years Day in all zones     
The above applies to all permit types.
