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 paid for by debit card, credit card, cheque, or postal order. To find out more about getting a parking waiver, please call 01642 726003.
