Parking suspensions move online

The new service will allow customers to make an application and pay for their suspension without having to submit paper forms. The council will continue to accept paper applications until Monday, 14 September while the new system is introduced. After this date, all applications must be made online.

Parking suspensions allow residents living in controlled parking zones (CPZ) to reserve specific bays for a limited period of time, for instance for removals or building works. It costs £30 to suspend a CPZ bay or a pay and display bay for 24 hours.

Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for transport, environment and leisure, said: “We are modernising all of our parking procedures to make them more efficient and to give customers more control. Our online suspensions application and payment forms are the latest change and will significantly speed up the application process.”
