Parking suspensions

Parking spaces can be suspended for a specific purpose:

  • to reserve a parking space for a specific vehicle to park whilst directly engaged in essential works
  • for a skip to be placed in a nearby parking space

Suspension of parking spaces will incur a charge which is payable at the time of application. 

Please note: New parking suspension charges have been introduced with effect from Monday 7 October 2019. For details of the new charges, see Charges
