2018 changes to kerbside permission charges (suspensions and dispensations)

​Following approval, our kerbside permission charges have increased from Monday 17 September 2018. General suspension and dispensation charges have increased by 4.3 per cent to take account of inflationary increases since the last charging increase in November 2015. Additionally, zone B and G suspensions have converted to the premium charging banding which also applies to zones E and F.

LJUG charges have not been subject to any increases, nor have any admin charges. Skip licence charges have also been unaffected.

The new charges for general suspensions are:

Suspension duration Suspension charge for Zones A, C & D per space Suspension charge for Zones B, E, F & G per space
Day 1 £46 £50
Days 2 to 5 £50 per day £54 per day
Days 6 to 42 £75 per day £81 per day
Day 43 onwards £100 per day £109 per day

The new charges for single yellow line dispensations are:

SYL dispensation duration Dispensation charges per vehicle
Day 1 £46
Days 2 to 5 £50 per day
Days 6 to 7 £75 per day

The new charges apply to applications made from Monday 17 September 2018.
