Apply to temporarily put traffic cones on a road, or yellow lines, to help with parking or traffic flow.

How we approve applications

We approve applications based on:

  • why you want the area restricted
  • where you want the restriction

Examples of dispensation or coning requests are:

  • to make sure there's room for a skip to be delivered or for a delivery to be made where the area might usually have cars parked
  • to allow a vehicle containing necessary equipment to be parked close to the site
  • a domestic removal
  • a wedding, funeral or other special event

How much it costs

Dispensation or coning requests are for roads where there are yellow lines or unrestricted parking. The cost of the request is £35 per day per 5 metre length, up to a maximum of £140 per day.

How to apply

Allow three working days for your application to be processed.

You'll need:

  • registration numbers for all your vehicles
  • any documents that you want to upload
  • if you're a council employee, your account code and cost code

Apply for a parking dispensation

We won't contact you to tell you your application has been approved; we'll only contact you if we need more information.

Traffic cones

We'll place the cones for you and collect them when the coning or dispensation is finished.
