We grant suspensions as long as they don't compromise traffic flow or prevent residents, local businesses or visitors from parking.
- a suspension temporarily prohibits the anyone else using the bay(s) - if you need a space reserved for a particular reason you'll need a parking suspension
What can suspensions be granted for?
A single bay or group of bays may be suspended and suspended bays are indicated by yellow warning signs erected as near to the suspended location as possible. We aim to erect these at least 3 days in advance.
Suspensions can be granted for:

Removal/relocations of vehicles parked in suspended bays
