When is a parking dispensation issued?

A parking dispensation is only issued when it is absolutely necessary for a vehicle to be parked for longer than permitted or in a restricted area. Reasons for the issue of a parking dispensation may include emergency works, building works and essential renovations where it is necessary to have the vehicle close to the location.

How long will my application take to process?

The Parking Management Unit aim to process your application within two working days after receipt of your completed form. In the event that your application has been refused, a letter of explanation will be offered.

Monitoring of parking dispensations

Please be aware that Parking Attendants will conduct frequent inspections to ensure that the dispensation is necessary. In the event that the dispensation is being misused, it will be cancelled immediately. The vehicle must not be causing an obstruction at any time.

  • This is not a general dispensation and is only used in respect of the vehicle, periods and purposes shown

Can I start parking before receiving my dispensation?
