Nottinghamshire County Council are currently responsible for all on-street RESIDENTS parking permits however, Broxtowe Borough Council and Rushcliffe Borough Council can offer on-street parking dispensations to business and trade persons where there is a requirement to park in a restricted area to carry out work activities.

To check what restrictions there are in a particular street please visit TraffWeb which shows all the current Traffic Regulation orders.

Applications must be made to Broxtowe & Rushcliffe's Parking Manager using the Dispensation Request Form (link at the bottom of the page). Payment is required on approval of the application prior to issuing of the dispensation.  The Council's decision is final.

The dispensation will stipulate on which street and at what times it is applicable. It is not therefore a general parking permit. The dispensation is subject to Terms and Conditions of Use - please read carefully prior to applying.

Unless there are significant extenuating circumstances, discretionary dispensations will not be issued for continuous periods in excess of 14 calendar days. Further dispensations issued beyond this period for continuing work will incur additional costs.

If approved dispensations will be issued to the applicant and must be clearly displayed on the vehicle whilst parked.  Details of the dispensation can be verified by the Civil Enforcement Officer if required. Discretionary permits will not be issued to Members or Officers of any Council for routine work or other purposes and will only be issued for the essential statutory or other requirements detailed above.

Discretionary dispensations will not be issued for locations where there is any possible danger to pedestrian or highway safety, for example;

  • on bends

  • on the brow of hills or where forward visibility is compromised

  • On clearways or roads subject to speed limits in excess of 40mph

  • Adjacent to pedestrian crossing points

  • Adjacent to school entrances

  • Where pedestrian visibility is impaired

  • Where Police, military or other safety could be compromised
