Commercial permits and tradesperson's waivers are available to our customers that need to park close to a property to maintain it, or if an extended stay period is required on-street.

Bay Suspensions for all On & Off Street Bays

(inclusive of Pay & Display, Resident and Limited wait bays), if the bays are not marked out individually then this will be calculated by the length of an average bay and charged for accordingly. 

The purpose of a bay suspension is to secure the vacant possession of one or more parking spaces in a road for works or house removal vehicles.  We can only provide this service along sections of road with formal parking restrictions along them (e.g. where there is limited waiting, resident’s parking or pay and display parking).

  • £125 per suspension (set-up cost), plus £25 per bay, per day
  • No refunds for cancellations of works will be given, under any circumstances.
