In exceptional circumstances the council will grant a dispensation for motorists to park in contravention of a parking restriction when it is necessary for them to undertake work or they are unable to park somewhere else.
Applications for a dispensation can be made by calling 0800 195 2774; a dispensation will only be granted if certain criteria are met, you will be asked a number of questions by a member of staff who will advise you whether you can or cannot park in contravention for an agreed period.
Dispensations cost £25.00 per vehicle and are valid for up to a week; however, we will determine how long you can park in contravention for, in some cases this may be for only one day.
Requests should be made at least two working days before the dispensation is required. Same-day dispensations can be granted for emergency cases. Payments can be made by credit or debit card, cheques will also be accepted but this must be received in our office before dispensation will be granted. Dispensation requests for all areas should be submitted via email firstname.lastname@example.org
or by calling 0800 195 2774.
