‘Parking dispensation’ means that we give you permission to park where you normally shouldn’t, such as on yellow lines or in a taxi rank or disabled bay. You can also apply to park somewhere for longer than normally allowed, such as in a waiting or loading bay (we call this a ‘bay suspension’).
It’s usually for things like:
£15 per vehicle, per day. In some circumstances or for large vehicles, we may charge £15 per 5 metres.
You need to apply at least three working days before, but please try and give as much notice as possible.
You’ll need to tell us:
After we receive your application we do an assessment, we look at:
We’ll contact you to let you know whether we can grant the dispensation. If we say yes, you’ll have to pay the fee as soon as you can. If you don’t pay before the first day of the dispensation then we’ll cancel your permission.
To pay, call 01925 442865 between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.
After you pay we’ll send you a dispensation certificate to put in your vehicle.
We might ask you to provide more information or proof of the reason why you’ve asked for the dispensation. If we don’t believe your application is honest and valid then we won’t give you permission.
