Parking dispensations are to allow commercial vehicles to park on areas with parking restrictions. The vehicle should be necessary for the work involved and used to gain access for materials and equipment having firstly received authorisation.
The Civil Enforcement Officers will conduct inspections to ensure the dispensation is necessary. If they feel it is being misused or not in accordance with the terms and conditions a Penalty Charge Notice will be issued.
We offer two types of virtual parking dispensations to those who are carrying out work to a property; they can be purchased on the MiPermit website. Once the transaction is complete the details are transferred to the Civil Enforcement Officers handhelds.
This is available for immediate purchase via the MiPermit website and is for use in the following restricted areas:
- Limited waiting Bays (excluding Disabled Limited Waiting Bays)
- Residents Parking Bays
Parking a vehicle with a Green Dispensation in any other type of restricted area (such as on a yellow line restriction) may result in a Penalty Charge Notice.
The cost of the Green Dispensation is £5 per vehicle per day and is only valid on the road specified when purchasing. It is not transferable between roads. For more information please contact Parking Services Unit on 01386 565009.
This is for use on the following restrictions only:
- Single yellow lines
- Double yellow lines
- Loading bays
A Red Dispensation does not allow you to park in areas covered by Green Dispensations. Doing so may result in a Penalty Charge Notice.
The cost of a Red Dispensation is £10 per vehicle, per day and is only valid on the road specified when purchasing. It is not transferable between roads. Please purchase a Red Dispensation at least 5 working days before the date on which you intend to begin using the dispensation. When purchasing, the Parking Services Unit will carry out an inspection of the area to ensure the vehicle(s) do not cause an obstruction, congestion or risk the safety of other motorists.
If the location is not suitable, payment for the dispensation(s) will be deferred. If there is no alternative or the alternative is insufficient, the purchase will be cancelled and no money taken from the bank account provided.
You can purchase a Red Dispensation by visiting the MiPermit website and selecting ‘Red Waiver' from the drop down menu.
