Suspension or Dispensation
S278 Suspensions (Developer Only)
For section S278 suspensions please e-mail email@example.com or telephone 01908 252309.
Suspension of bays
You can apply to have a parking bay(s) temporarily suspended. This means that it will be coned off exclusively for your use for a designated period of time. Signs will also be erected advising other motorists that they cannot park in that bay(s). If other motorists do park in the bay, we can issue a parking fine. We will not suspend disabled parking bays unless absolutely necessary.
The more notice you allow, the higher the chance of the suspension being permitted. We recommend that you allow a minimum of 10 days’ notice; however, it may be possible to accommodate your request with less notice.
Dispensation of Restriction
You can apply for a dispensation of restrictions. This will allow you to park in a place where you would otherwise not be permitted, e.g. on yellow lines or for longer than allowed in a time limited area.
There must be a valid reason for the suspension or dispensation, please see the list below. You cannot have a suspension or dispensation simply to allow you to park to go to work or to park outside your house. A suspension/dispensation will normally be permitted for:
- Building, industrial or demolition purposes
- Maintenance, improvement or reconstruction of the parking place or highway
- For the removal of furniture
- For weddings and funerals
- For special occasions
