Special parking permit

Application for a special parking permit

This permit allows parking where different arrangements can't be made for the following reasons:

  • Loading and unloading where it is normally prohibited or where the permitted period for doing so isn't long enough, or
  • Situations where other arrangements is not suitable.

This permit does not allow general parking. It does not allow the vehicle to stay in the restricted / prohibited area once the dispensation period or purpose has been fulfilled. At that time the motorist is required to park legally and somewhere else.

  • Building / maintenance work where keeping the vehicle in close proximity to the working area / site is essential.
  • Furniture removals.
  • Carpet fitters and Glaziers where tools and materials are needed as close as possible to their working area.
  • Vehicles essential to filming or marketing operations.
  • Other circumstances in which the Council may reasonably regard the requirements to be essential.

  • Where parking may adversely affect disabled bays / doctors bays / taxi ranks / bus stops.
  • Within close proximity of a signal controlled junction, pedestrian crossing, on a footway or other location where parking may cause a danger to the public or cause an obstruction to traffic flow and essential services.
  • Where loading restrictions are in place and the dispensation is requested during those restricted period(s).
