Applying for a parking suspension

If you need to suspend a parking space, submit an online application form within the minimum notice period.

Apply for a parking suspension

We'll send you a confirmation email when we've approved the suspension. Please keep this email safe as it'll have details of the suspension and phone numbers you might need if an unauthorised vehicle parks in the suspended parking space.

Note: we do not accept applications over the phone.

We require the following minimum notice period to process your application.

3 full working days notice to suspend the following parking spaces:

  • pay and display

Extensions
