How to apply for a parking suspension

A suspension request may be made using the online form. You can do this when a parking bay or bays are required for a particular valid activity. It should only be requested when the activity can't be performed from another position or parking place.

When will a parking bay suspension be considered?

Parking bay suspensions will be considered 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
  • wedding or funeral vehicles
  • vehicles essential to filming operations
  • other circumstances where we consider the need to be essential

When will a parking bay suspension request not be considered?

Parking bay suspensions cannot be considered:

  • if a request is being made for convenience rather than necessity
  • where there are no parking restrictions, for example where there are no designated parking bays

What does a parking suspension cost?

The standard cost for suspending a parking bay is £20.00 per day. Payment by debit or credit card is required before a suspension is granted.

Please note:

  • requests should be made at least five working days before the suspension start date. It may not be possible to approve shorter notice requests
  • 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.
