Parking suspensions may be subject to a fee for each chargeable day, per space required. A chargeable day is any day where parking restrictions would normally apply in the area.

Applications should be made at least 10 working days before the date the suspension is needed.

Please provide us with a payment confirmation before the scheduled works date. This is to ensure all preparations are in order for the suspension to proceed as planned.

Admin fees will apply to changes, including cancellations made at least 5 working days before the suspension date.

Parking dispensations

You can apply for a dispensation to park for a short period in a restricted area. You may need this temporary dispensation when moving house or for building works.

You are not guaranteed a parking spot with a temporary dispensation. We will only approve dispensations that will not disrupt people using the road.
