Parking Suspensions and Dispensations

Parking Dispensation

A parking dispensation is an exemption to existing parking controls.

Each parking dispensation is for only one vehicle and issued for a certain restriction but does not guarantee a specific parking space.

Every application is considered on its individual merits and dispensations are likely to be granted only where there is no alternative parking available for the reasons set out in the application.

The fee for a parking dispensation is £30 per vehicle per day. 

Parking Dispensations can be used in only one vehicle. We do not offer refunds for dispensations.

Parking Place Suspension

A parking place suspension temporarily reserves the bay for a particular purpose and it is shown by a yellow sign erected on the nearest signpost.

Parking Suspensions are often used to enable essential highway maintenance or utilities works and every application is considered on its individual merits.

A parking space cannot be suspended for preferential or convenience parking.

If an unauthorised vehicle proceeds to park in the suspended area, an officer will issue the vehicle a Penalty Charge Notice, but we do not have the facilities to remove the vehicle.

The fee for suspending a parking place (5.25m) is £30 per day. Parking suspensions are non-refundable.
