Parking bay suspensions and waivers
Parking bay suspensions
If you require parking bays to be suspended and you have gained approval from Staffordshire County Council, you will need to erect parking bay suspension signs in line with the specifications set out by the Department for Transport in the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 - Section 64 and Section 65.

Please note there is a £35.00 application review fee for a parking bay suspension.
You will also need to apply for a parking waiver for all vehicles which park within the bay.
Temporary parking waiver
A temporary parking waiver will allow you to bypass some parking restrictions but will only be issued in specific circumstances. Likewise, if you need to stop vehicles from parking in a marked bay, you can request that the bay be suspended, and if you want to park there yourself, a waiver would also be required.
