Dispensations may be granted where a vehicle is required to be parked at, or near to, a location where parking would not usually be permitted (such as double yellow lines). It should be requested where no alternative parking is available. 

Dispensations will be considered from or for:

  • 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
  • vehicles essential to filming operations
  • other circumstances where we consider the need to be essential.

Dispensations will not be granted where there is reasonable alternative off-street parking nearby. Or, if it seems the dispensation is for convenience rather than necessity.

The standard cost for dispensation is £25.00 per vehicle per day. Payment by debit or credit card is required before a dispensation is granted.

Requests should be made at least five days before the dispensation start date to allow a site visit to take place, if necessary. Requests received within five days of the start date may not be approved. 

Alterations to times, dates or locations cannot be made after the form has been submitted. Refunds will not be given even if the event doesn’t go ahead.

For skips, scaffolding or other building materials/machinery to be placed on the highway, a licence should be obtained from Island Roads.
