Apply for a parking suspension

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

You can apply to suspend on-street parking spaces, including:

  • resident parking spaces (for no longer than 7 days in a row, unless other parking areas are made available to residents)
  • any space where it is legal to park and does not cause an obstruction

How to apply

To apply you need to upload proof of:

  • your address (this can be a Council Tax or utility bill, or a tenancy agreement)
  • the vehicle you are using (this can be a vehicle registration document, or a hire or lease agreement)
  • the space you want to suspend (this can be a screenshot from an online mapping tool, or any other images that will help us to identify the specific area you want to suspend)

Reasons we may suspend a parking space

There needs to be a good reason for us to suspend a parking space. This can include:

  • ensuring the safe movement of traffic
  • essential building or maintenance work
  • essential highways or utilities work
  • furniture removals
  • filming
  • special events such as weddings or funerals
  • pedestrian safety

You cannot get a parking suspension for general parking needs.

On-street suspensions are only available for up to 6 months.

If you need a suspension for longer than 6 months, you will need to get a temporary traffic order.
