Parking bay suspensions (formerly waivers)

Parking waivers can be used by your removal company, builder or contractor to suspend a parking bay for their use.

They allow all day parking in restricted areas such as:

  • resident bays
  • business bays 
  • pay and display bays 
  • on yellow lines

To apply you will need:

  • details of the business such as name and address 
  • reason for the waiver
  • location of the waiver – where the work is being carried out
  • vehicle details, such as registration number, make and model
  • address for the permit to be sent to if that’s different from the business address
  • the period the waiver should cover
  • documents confirming the works being carried out, such as a plan or invoice
  • a contact number for us to call and take payment


Price per parking space per day:

  • 1 - 7 days £50
  • 8 - 14 days £100
  • 15 days and above £150

Once the application has been received you will be contacted for payment. The permit will then be sent out in the post.

If you experience any problems applying for a permit, or if you have any questions, please contact us using our online enquiry form​​.
