Parking bay suspensions

You can apply for an on-street parking bay in Woking borough to be suspended for a variety of reasons. We require at least five working days in advance of the requested suspension date. 

Apply to suspend a parking bay

You will need to provide:

  • details on the reason for suspension
  • length of time the suspension is required
  • type of building and/or maintenance work, if applicable
  • name of the contractor, if applicable.

If you require a bay to be suspended longer than 10 consecutive days, you will need to apply again and tell us this is an extension to an existing suspension.


There is a charge of £65 which covers the first three days and then a charge of £10 for each additional day thereafter. There is no charge for weddings and funerals.

We will refund cancelled applications but these will be subject to a £25.00 administration charge.


The suspension of a parking bay is at our discretion. We do not suspend bays just to provide somewhere for vehicles to park.

Once approved, notices will be displayed at the relevant parking bays giving motorists advanced warning of the pending suspension. However, we cannot guarantee that a motorist will ignore the signs and park in bays that are not coned off.

Any unauthorised vehicles parked in a suspended bay, or any vehicles parked disregarding the suspension conditions, may be issued with a penalty charge notice (PCN).


For more information, please phone our parking services team.
