Outside of the above period we need:
- ten working days notice in writing to suspend a resident parking space
- two working days notice in writing to suspend a pay and display bay
Working days apply from Monday to Friday, and don't include holidays or bank holidays.
We must receive your application before 3pm to accept it for that day.
There needs to be one clear consecutive week between the dates required for a suspension for a second application to be treated as a new application and incur the lower charges.
Details are outlined in our notice period chart:
If you are applying for a suspension for filming we need longer notice.

Complaints and changes
If we receive any complaints about how you are using the suspended bay, we will investigate and could withdraw the parking suspension.
If you have booked a suspension, you must email us at firstname.lastname@example.org about any changes to your booking immediately.
If you need to renew your suspension you must tell us in writing by 3pm on the day before the suspension ends. If you do not, the bays will return to general use and you will have to reapply and will need to give the required notice period before the suspension starts again.
