The Royal Borough is increasing the charges for suspending a parking bay from 1 April 2019.
The suspension fee is chargeable per day and per space, with fees increasing to discourage long term suspensions. The new fee per space will be £56 for each of the first 5 days, then £84 daily from day 6 to day 42 and £112 daily from day 43 upwards.
These changes are a consequence of the increase that will take place at the same time to charges for parking in pay and display bays. This is to prevent users from suspending a bay for a day as a cheaper alternative to using pay and display parking.
The non-statutory fees charged for issuing a licence or permit for the highway will also increase.
Further information about parking suspensions and how to apply, is available on the Parking suspensions page.
