Parking Dispensations and Suspensions

About a parking dispensation or a parking suspension

If you need to be parked on an area of public highway where a traffic restriction is in place, you would need to apply for a parking dispensation or suspension .

Read our doc icon application form, rules and regulations [85kb] for more information on how to apply.

Applications for parking dispensations and suspensions will always be subject to advice from our Traffic Management team about safety issues.  Applications may be refused if there are safety concerns.

Please remember that all applications for the placing of a skip in parking bays or on yellow lines must also have a skip licence as agreed with our highways team.

Suspension and dispensations are only issued if you need to have regular access to your vehicle - they aren't issued as an alternative to paying a parking charge.  We reserve the right to issue and withdraw dispensations and suspensions at our discretion.
