Parking restriction suspensions
The normal restrictions applied to an on-street parking bay can be temporarily suspended or altered to allow for building works, domestic or business removals, weddings, funerals or filming work, special events, emergencies or when advised by the police for security reasons.
A sign will be placed by any suspended bay to notify the public, explaining the reason for the suspension and the relevant days and times.
Residents or businesses can apply for specific parking bays to be suspended at a cost of £25 per space per day where a space is approximately 5 meters by contacting 01223 727 915 or [email protected]. To do this you need to give us a minimum of seven days notice.
Although a suspension increases the chance that a space will be available, it cannot be guaranteed as we cannot remove vehicles parked in a suspended bay. We will try to contact any drivers who are displaying a resident permit and a PCN will be issued to any vehicles that remain in the suspended bay. We cannot refund the cost of a suspension if the space is not available.
A waiver is a permit that allows parking on single or double yellow lines and in pay and display or resident bays. Waivers are only issued where the vehicle is absolutely necessary for completion of a specific task.
If a Civil Enforcement Officer sees a vehicle with a waiver but does not observe the activity for which the waiver was granted taking place, they will issue a Penalty Charge Notice.
To apply for a waiver contact 01223 727 915 or [email protected]. There is an administration fee of £20 per waiver, per day for each vehicle.
You will have to give details of the reason the waiver is needed and provide at least five days notice so that a site inspection can be carried out by an authorised council officer
