Parking suspensions and dispensations for works
Parking bay suspensions, including disabled and motorcycle bays
Call our Contact Centre on 020 7332 1548 if you want information on and how to apply for a parking bay suspension for street works on the highway or a dispensation. We need five working days to process a parking bay suspension and three working days for a parking dispensation.
The first bay administration fee will be applied to the first bay of each type and each bay thereafter will be charged in accordance with the below charges.
The City of London Police deal with applications to suspend taxi ranks.

Disabled and Motorcycle Bays needed for longer than 4 weeks need an Equality Impact Assessment. A suspension longer than 3 months may incur an additional fee of £2,200 if the bay needs to be relocated.
If a vehicle is to stand on a suspended bay, you will also need a dispensation.
|Bay||First Bay||Additional Bays||
Daily Service Charge
|Pay & Display||£400||£30||£40|
|E/Scooter & Cycle (Toast Racks)||£400||£400||Additional charges applied to remove/reinstall bay infrastructure|
A parking dispensation permits a vehicle to stand on a single yellow line (or in special cases on double yellow lines) if a vehicle needs to be as close to the premises as possible for loading/unloading goods and materials for longer than the permitted time (40 minutes) in a location where 'no loading' restrictions apply.
The daily charge is £36. The daily charge is £40 for requests approved with fewer than three working days' notice.
You must display the original dispensation on the vehicle at all times. You cannot use a photocopy.
Loading and unloading
When you deliver or collect goods, documents, packages or materials, to or from a customer, property or location.
Loading or unloading on a Red Route
Dispensations for a Red Route are issued by Transport for London (TfL). Information is on the TfL dispensations page or call 0845 603 4545.
Specific loading or unloading restrictions
A parking dispensation is not available where loading restrictions are shown by single or double yellow markings on the kerbstone. Nearby black and white time plates show the periods when loading and unloading is not allowed.
