Parking bay suspensions

Apply for a parking bay suspension

Please note that we will not be accepting any Suspension / Dispensation requests after 4pm on Thursday 16th December, due to the Christmas Break. We will resume taking Suspension / Dispensation requests from Monday, 4th January 2021.


To suspend a paid for parking bay (a pay and display or shared use parking bay), we charge a £25 administration fee plus:  

  • East Ham, Stratford, Upton Park: £21 per bay per day 
  • East Village: £26 per bay per day 
  • Forest Gate, Little Ilford, Manor Park, Ruskin: £16 per bay per day 
  • Green Street: £20 per bay per day 
  • Station Road and Romford Road: £16 per bay per day. 

To suspend a parking bay in a RPZ or an IPZ that is not a paid for parking (pay and display or shared use bay)  there is no daily bay suspension charge. We will only charge an administration fee of £25.


You can apply to have up to a maximum of three spaces suspended. If you want to send a location map with your application, make sure you clearly mark the bay(s) that you want suspended.

Make sure you leave enough time to apply. We will need at least 10 working days to process your application.

We will email you within five working days to tell you whether or not we have approved your application. If we approve your application we will tell you how to make your payment. You will need either a credit or debit card.

If you wish to change your application, you may need to pay an additional £25 administration fee.
