In order to carry out works to adjacent properties it is occasionally necessary for vehicles to park in restricted areas, i.e. on yellow lines, or all day in a limited stay parking area. In these cases a parking waiver should be purchased from the council.
A parking waiver enables a vehicle to be parked as near as possible to the desired location, however it doesn't allow parking on:
- a loading restriction during its hours of operation (marked by yellow kerb lines)
- a bus stop
- a taxi rank
- school 'keep clear' markings
- zigzag markings on a pedestrian crossing or crossing area
- anywhere that would cause an obstruction or a road safety hazard
Failure to comply with these conditions may result in a Penalty Charge Notice being issued. Vehicles must be moved on the instruction of a Civil Enforcement Officer or police officer.
Parking waivers cost £16 per vehicle per day and can be purchased from the Customer Centre at Middlesbrough House.
Payments can be made by cash, cheque, postal order, debit or credit card (most major cards are accepted). Parking waivers can also be paid for by phone by calling 01642 726003.
