Parking waivers

Sometimes it's necessary for vehicles to park in restricted areas to carry out works to nearby properties. For example, parking on yellow lines, or staying all day in a limited stay parking area

In these cases, you'll need to pay for a parking waiver from the council.

A parking waiver allows a vehicle to be parked as near as possible to the desired location.

However, it a parking waiver does not 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

If you do not comply with these conditions, you may be given a Penalty Charge Notice. You must move your vehicles if asked to do so by a Civil Enforcement Officer or police officer.

Parking waivers cost £16 per vehicle per day. You can pay by debit card or credit card. To find out more about getting a parking waiver, please call 01642 726003.
