Parking suspensions and dispensations

To temporarily reserve a parking space, you can apply for a parking:

  • suspension
  • dispensation

Parking suspension

A parking suspension is when a parking space or spaces are put out of use for a limited time.

For example, you can suspend a resident parking space for a short period, or a space in a car park run by the council.

Parking dispensation

With a parking dispensation you can park for a limited time in a place where there are parking restrictions.

For example, you can park temporarily on double yellow lines to carry out essential works where a vehicle is needed.
