If you need to have a parking space available on a specific date we are able to provide a chargeable service which will cone off an area within a bay to suspend parking at this location, allowing you exclusive use of the coned area. Please note that we are not able to remove vehicles which have parked within a suspended bay, but we can issue a Penalty Charge Notice.


Bay suspension is also required for skips which need to be left at an on-street location.

Please complete the application form (link below) to apply.

What are the costs?

Single/First Space

All zones/areas





Additional Space

Central Zone and Zone 1



All other zones and areas



Prices are per parking space based on the length of an average car.  For Long wheel based vehicles or lorries two or more spaces would be required.

The costs for this service shown above cover a single day’s parking suspension.  Longer suspension periods are available, chargeable at a single day rate per additional day.

Please see example of charges below:

Central Zone and Zone 1

First day for 2 spaces: £44 + £29 = £73

Second day for 2 spaces (and any other subsequent days per day) = £29 + £29 = £58

All other Zones and Areas

First day for 2 spaces: £44 + £10 = £54

Second day for 2 spaces (and any other subsequent days per day) = £10 + £10 = £20
