How to get parking restrictions suspended

You can apply for either a dispensation or a suspension:

  • a parking dispensation is for parking on yellow lines
  • a suspension is to temporarily lift limits on the use of a parking bay

Dispensations

You can apply for a dispensation if you need to park your vehicle in an area with parking restrictions while you carry out work or attend an important function at a specific address. This might be needed in cases such as:

If you want to deposit a skip on any road, you will also have to buy a skip licence.
