Parking waivers

A parking waiver can be issued to permit a vehicle to park in contravention of a traffic management order.

Waivers can be issued for reasons such as to facilitate loading/unloading where this action is normally banned or permitted for an insufficient period of time.

Issue of a parking waiver will incur a charge. Subject to approval the charge is payable upon collection of the waiver.

A waiver may be issued for a variety of reasons including such circumstances as:

  • to authorise loading/unloading of a vehicle where this action is either banned or permitted for an insufficient limited period and other alternative arrangements cannot be made.
  • to authorise a vehicle to park near a property when any alternative arrangement would be unsatisfactory eg weddings, funerals, removals, building maintenance or repair works.

Note: It is only in exceptional circumstances that a parking waiver will be authorised for a vehicle to park in an area where there is a un/loading ban in place. The exceptional circumstances would include:

  • essential loading/unloading
  • scaffolding vehicles directly engaged in erecting/removing of scaffolding
  • glazier's vehicles directly engaged in window replacement/repair process

Only the following activities will be considered for a parking waiver: 

  • large deliveries
  • domestic or office removals
  • glass/window installation where a glass rack is fitted to the vehicle's side
