Suspension of parking bays only applies to parking bays/spaces. It doesn't apply to bus stops or taxi bays, unless with permission from Hampshire County Council.
You must apply online for a suspension. It costs £50 per 6 metres and a 10-day notice period is required.
When we receive a suspension request we may:
- visit the site
- erect signs including dates from and to
- leave cones
- inform immediate neighbours
You should make a note of any vehicle parked in the suspended bays during the suspension period. This is so the owners do not receive a penalty charge notice in error.
Suspension of a parking bay is suitable for:
- removal vehicles
- large or heavy/bulky deliveries
- private works to properties
- possible storage of works materials
Use a visitor permit for small daily works.
Works vehicles should not park in suspended bays.
The suggested maximum length of a suspension is 1 month. To extend a suspension for another month, you will need to pay a further £50 to cover administrative costs.
The Traffic Regulation Order covers Hampshire County Council highways works. The County Council will notify residents and carry out suspension works.
If you park a vehicle in a suspended bay and you do not meet the above criteria, you may receive a penalty charge notice.
