Parking Suspensions and dispensations

Suspending parking bays and getting permission to park on yellow lines

A minimum notice period of 5 working days is required for all applications. Failure to provide this notice may result in delays or refusal.

Suspending an on-street parking bay

We will suspend the use of on-street pay and display bays for specific reasons. We will consider applications for:

  • building operations;
  • domestic removals;
  • weddings, funerals or special events;
  • delivery of goods taking longer than the permitted time;
  • filming (essential vehicles only such as lighting generators, props vehicles). 

The cost is £30 per day, per bay.

Dispensation to park on yellow lines

A dispensation allows a specified vehicle to park on single or double yellow lines during restricted hours in a particular location, for a specific time. A certificate is issued which must be displayed clearly in the vehicle.

The cost is £30 per vehicle, per day

It is your responsibility to ensure a site visit is undertaken and the location you require meets your needs, prior to submitting an application.

It is advised not to rely on online mapping tools such as Google Maps as they may not be accurate at the time of your application.
