Parking Dispensations and Suspensions
Information about parking dispensations and suspensions and how to apply
From 1 April 2020, dispensations moved to a virtual style scheme.
All applications can be made through the MiPermit Portal. Once the virtual dispensation permit is active, it covers the vehicle registration number specified in the application. Vehicles will no longer have to display a dispensation notice.
The cost for a dispensation from 1 April 2020 is £15 per bay (5 metres), per day.

You will need to apply for a parking dispensation or suspension, if you need to park on an area of public highway where a traffic restriction is in place.
Dispensations and suspensions are only issued if you need to have regular access to your vehicle. They are not issued as an alternative to paying a parking charge.

We reserve the right to issue and withdraw dispensations and suspensions at our discretion.
Please remember: all applications for the placing of a skip in parking bays or on yellow lines must also have a skip licence as agreed with our highways team.
