Tradesmen dispensation scheme in the Christchurch area

In the Christchurch area we have a dispensation scheme that allows tradesmen to park close to where they are going to carry out work for an agreed period of time. This scheme is designed specifically to give access to tradesmen when there are no other alternatives for parking. 

You must apply at least 3 days before the start of the works. If the dispensation is approved, you will receive an email advising you to visit the civic offices to make payment. You will be issued with a virtual permit once payment is made.


  • full day - £11 for the first day of work - £8 for each subsequent day thereafter (per vehicle).

To apply please download our application form and return it to or by post to:
