Parking Suspensions & Dispensations

Parking Suspension

A parking bay suspension request may be made for times when a specific parking bay or parking bays are required for a particular activity to be carried out, where it would not be possible from any other position or parking place.  This would normally be to reserve space for a house move or a skip delivery.  However, there are other circumstances where a parking bay suspension may be considered such as those included in the list below:

  • Removal Vehicles
  • Shop Fitting Vehicles
  • Building Operations where proximity to the site is essential
  • Highway Maintenance/Utility Works
  • Skip/Scaffolding to be placed on the highway
  • Glaziers
  • Wedding or Funeral vehicle
  • Vehicles essential to filming operations
  • Other circumstances where The Isle of Wight Council may reasonably regard the requirement to be essential

Suspensions will not be granted if it seems the waiver is being requested for convenience rather than necessity.

The standard cost for suspending a parking bay is £20.00 per day.  To apply for a parking bay suspension, please use the 'Do it online' tab at the top of the page and select the 'Parking Suspension Form', or alternatively telephone Parking Services on 01983 823714 between Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm.

Ideally, your bay suspension request should be received at least 5 days prior to the suspension start date to allow preparation and installation of signs to notify users of the parking place.  Suspension requests received within 5 days of the suspension request date may not be approved if we do not have the resources available to process the request.  Payment will always be required before the suspension is granted.

All parking bay suspension requests are considered at the discretion of The Isle of Wight Council.

Please note, that for skips, scaffolding or other building materials/machinery to be placed on the highway, the relevant licence should be obtained from Island Roads
