Under the Parking Bay Suspension scheme, companies must apply for a suspension if they need to suspend bays to work on:

  • the highway
  • a public car park.

Ongoing street works

For any ongoing street works, you must have a street works permit approved before you apply for bay suspensions.

You will need your street works permit number to apply.


Suspensions cost £33 per bay, per day. 

Parking suspensions within a car park are subject to VAT.

You must provide your own barriers. 


You cannot apply for a bay suspension when:

  • companies or individuals are moving
  • there are no restrictions in place.

If you have any questions about exemptions, email us at streetworks@medway.gov.uk.
