Single yellow line dispensations

Commercial vehicles that need to park on a single yellow line in Woking borough while carrying out work on a nearby property can apply for a ‘dispensation parking notice’.

A dispensation notice costs £15 per vehicle. This allows you to park for three consecutive days.  Each day after that costs £5 per vehicle. VAT is not applicable.

Who can apply

A commercial vehicle is defined as an enclosed van, lorry or open-backed truck, which is being used in connection with the driver's trade or business. It does not apply to an estate car, 4x4 or any other vehicle with side windows.

How to apply

You will need to provide:

  • your contact details: name, address, email address and phone number
  • the name of street on which you intend to work
  • the vehicle’s details: make and model, and registration number.

Applications should be made at least five working days before you want to start parking on the single yellow line.

Apply for a dispensation parking notice


A dispensation parking notice is not valid for parking in parking bays or on double yellow lines. In a controlled parking zone, if parking bays are available you should ask the resident you are doing the work for if they have a visitor permit.

We do not issue certificates for any location where there is a loading restriction, or where the presence of your vehicle would cause an obstruction.
