Apply for parking suspensions or dispensations

Parking bay suspensions

We can suspend restrictions on parking bays if necessary (for example, for building work or for aiding traffic flow). The cost is normally £36 a day per bay, payable in advance of the suspension. When there is a requirement to suspend multiple parking bays, the cost will be reduced.

We need at least 48 hours’ notice to consider granting a parking bay suspension.

Parking dispensations

A parking dispensation allows a vehicle to park on some restrictions (residents/business permit bays, limited wait bays and loading bays only) where this parking is essential ie there is a compelling reason for the vehicle to be parked at the requested location and there is no suitable alternative legitimate parking available.

The cost is £16 per vehicle, per day.

Please provide at least 48 hours’ notice to allow sufficient time to consider the granting of a parking dispensation. When making our decision, we’ll review possible effects on traffic flow and the availability of suitable parking in the area.

In all cases, the granting of a parking dispensation will be at the discretion of Birmingham City Council.

Highways permits

A parking dispensation does not cover parking on yellow/red line parking restrictions. These require a highways permit

In all cases, the granting of a highways permit will be at the discretion of Birmingham City Council.
