A waiver permit allows a person or company to be exempt from some parking restrictions.
Traders must display one when parking on a road with restrictions. We do not issue them to private motor vehicles. Each waiver permit must be issued to a specific vehicle.
They do not apply to utility companies carrying out emergency works.
We may issue a permit where:
- constant access to a vehicle is vital to carry out works
- parking close to a premises is essential for work demands
A waiver permit generally allows the user to park in:
- time-limited waiting bays
- resident permit bays
We may allow one for a single yellow line, if no loading restrictions are in force.
We do not usually grant permission to park:
- on double yellow lines
- in bays designated for specific vehicle classes, such as disabled or loading bays
How to apply
Each permit costs £15.60.
There is a limit of six permits per application. This is only granted if the location allows. If you need more, you must email [email protected] before you apply.
You must give us at least five working days notice to process your application. If you require a waiver permit for emergency works email [email protected] prior to submitting your application.
You need to apply to extend or amend an existing permit. This will cost £15.60.
Once a waiver has been issued:
- it is only valid for parking as stated on the permit
- you must print it in colour and put it on display at all times
- you must not deposit goods on the footpath
- you may get a Penalty Charge Notice if we believe you are abusing the rules
We may revoke a parking waiver for any reason we see fit, such as suspected misuse. We also have the right to refuse an application at any time.
