Suspend a parking bay
Parking places can be suspended in certain circumstances, for example, during:
- building works
- utility works
- special events
Suspending a parking place stops people from parking in it if you need to park a specific vehicle to carry out a removal.
If you request a parking suspension for the purpose of building works, vehicles may only park in the suspension parking place. We can’t suspend a bay with a waiting restriction.
Suspensions only apply during the operational hours of the Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) so please check the parking signs at the location you require before applying online. You can also view parking restrictions by searching the map at the Traffweb website.
If you require a suspension outside of the operational hours, or require a suspension of waiting restrictions, you will need to contact the street works team to request a Temporary Traffic Order.
We can’t guarantee that people will not park illegally in a suspended bay, but if they do they’ll get a penalty charge notice and in urgent circumstances the vehicle may be relocated. The council can’t clamp a vehicle. If you wish to report a vehicle parked in contravention in a suspended bay you can phone our 24-hour enforcement line on 0203 856 0020
Apply for a parking bay suspension
Applications must be submitted at least 5 working days prior to the date you require your suspension to start.
You can apply online, and will need the following information:
- exact location
- number of parking spaces
Parking suspensions are charged at a daily rate of £40 per day for a resident permit parking space (a 5-metre length), and £55 per day for an on street paid parking place (a 5-metre length). There is an administration fee of £130 per application.
You should pay in advance of the suspension being carried out. However, if payment can’t be made in advance we’ll need a purchase order number, with payment being provided shortly afterwards.
Cancellations or changes
Should you need to change or cancel the suspension you have booked, please contact our parking permit team at least 7 days before the date your suspension is due to start.
There may be additional fees to pay for amendments. If you need to cancel your suspension, we will advise you of any refund due.
Skip operator licence
If you’re carrying out building work and require a skip you’ll need to get a skip operator license
Social distancing locations which we cannot suspend
To aid social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, there are barriers and parklets installed in town centres, taking those parking bays out of use. These locations are listed below. If you require a suspension in the vicinity of these locations, you must contact us to discuss options before making an application. We cannot suspend parking bays which have been repurposed as a parklet but will do our best to assist with your requirements. You can find general information about these measures here.
