Apply to park at a specific site where there are parking restrictions

A parking dispensation lets you park at a specific site where there are parking restrictions.  It lasts for up to two weeks and can only be issued for:

  • Building, maintenance or repair works where parking near the site is essential
  • Vehicles essential to filming operations

  • affect disabled parking spaces, doctors’ spaces, taxi ranks, bus stops or residential bays
  • are on double yellow lines
  • are within a loading restricted area during the restricted times
  • are within 50m of a signal controlled junction
  • involve parking on a footway
  • may cause danger to pedestrians or other road users

Check the signs and lines at the site. In many places you can load and unload where there are parking restrictions as long as you move your vehicle as soon as you are done.
