Temporary Permits

For residents who need to park on-street on a temporary basis during self-isolation or furlough (not working from home), a dispensation notice is now available for £5 per vehicle and is valid for a month. It is valid in any residents or shared use bays, but not on yellow lines, taxi ranks, loading bays or disabled bays. The dispensation notice covers Controlled Parking Zones (CPZs) and non-CPZ areas but not off-street car parks.
There are some private roads within the CPZ which are not applicable for this arrangement. Please see the list below.
To get a dispensation notice, please contact 01444 477212 (option 2). These arrangements will be reviewed on a monthly basis.

This means that they will not be able to apply for either resident permits or visitor permits to park on the surrounding roads outside their home and must make their own arrangements.
