Temporary parking dispensation

A parking dispensation may be granted for contractors whose vehicle is required to be parked on-street at, or near to, a precise location and where no alternative parking is reasonably available.

Eligibility for parking dispensation

Although not an exhaustive list, applications for dispensations will be considered for:

  • Shop fitting vehicles
  • Building operations
  • Crane operations
  • Glaziers
  • Renovations

We will try to authorise as many dispensations as possible. However, each application will be assessed individually and our first priority is to maintain free and safe traffic flow.

Dispensations will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis. If it is not possible to grant you one for the bay/area you require we will do our best to offer you the next most convenient bay/area available.

If for any reason your application cannot be approved you will receive an email explaining the decision and your payment will be refunded.

Please allow 7 days to ensure that you receive your dispensation by post. 


For dispensations or to report illegally parked vehicles please contact our dispatch office on 01253 476395.

This line is available Sunday to Thursday 7.00am to 9.45pm, Friday and Saturday 7.00am to 11.15pm.
