How to Apply

Download an application form or call Parking Services on 01225 47 71 33 to request a paper copy of the form.

If you require the suspension for longer than 6 months, then you will need to apply for a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO). Please email for further information or to apply.


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

Please complete the skips application form to apply.
