Parking Suspensions, Dispensations and Special Access Permits

Parking Suspensions

There are two types of parking bay suspension - that we can offer:

  • Parking suspension for utility companies, contractors or builders.
  • Parking suspension to facilitate a residential move.

Yellow suspension notices will be displayed 14 days before the start of the suspension - subject to receipt of payment.

We require a notice period of 28 days - this includes the 14 day period for the display of the notices. If the application is made less than 28 days prior to the start date, the charge will still be applicable and the yellow notices will still be displayed - however the suspension cannot be enforced.

The charge is non-refundable and any amendments will require a new application and payment.

All suspensions are at the discretion of the council.

Parking Suspension for Utility Companies, Contractors or Builders

This type of suspension will set aside a specific on-street parking bay to facilitate works that take place in the bay itself or in the adjacent to the bay - where the bay is needed for traffic management measures.

The parking bay will remain empty, unless used as above.  The bay cannot be used for parking or storage.

Parking bays cannot be suspended to reserve parking for contractors, builders, visitors or to facilitate building works.

One off suspensions to facilitate concrete or steel delivery may be considered, subject to the scale and extent of the project.

Charges

  • Standard ( 1 - 28 days (Maximum): £997.00
  • Local interest events: £147.00

Suspension for a Residential Move

This type of suspension will set aside a specific on-street parking bay to accommodate a removal vehicle.
The application can be made by the resident or the removal company.

Charges

  • Charge per day -  per bay: £25.00

A bay is classed as 5.5 metres. Please ensure that a sufficient number of bays are selected to accommodate the size of vehicle used.

Parking Dispensations

If your vehicle needs to park very close to a property where parking restrictions apply, a dispensation may be required.

This permit does not reserve a specific parking bay or space and cannot guarantee parking availability.

The permit is issued for a specific road and registration number as requested and is not transferable.

The dispensation will be sent via a PDF in an e-mail.  The permit will need to be printed off and displayed in the vehicle to avoid the issue of a Penalty Charge Notice.

All requests are subject to approval of the Parking Team.

Charges

  • 1st day: £25.00
  • Additional days: £ 5.50
  • One week (7 consecutive days):  £45.00
  • Two weeks (14 consecutive days): £75.00
  • Three weeks (21 consecutive days): £105.00
  • Four weeks (28 consecutive days): £130.00
  • Late payment charge: + £55.00

However, if a Dispensation is required in under 48 Hours , there will be a late payment charge .

These charges are non-refundable and any amendments would require a new application and payment.
