Businesses can apply for a parking dispensation to allow vehicles to park on areas which have enforceable parking restrictions in place.

These are usually only issued when we are satisfied the individual or company needs to have regular access to a vehicle to assist with their work, such as to collect materials or tools.

Reasons we would grant a dispensation include:

  • Emergency works
  • Building works
  • Essential renovations where it is necessary to have the vehicle close to the location

Dispensations cost £5 a day for each vehicle. Charging starts from the first day of the dispensation. You must apply at least 7 days before you want the dispensation to start.
