Dispensation Permits - Traders

Fareham Borough Council currently issue dispensation permits to allow vehicles to park, where parking restrictions apply. Parking dispensations may be granted where a vehicle is required to be parked at or near to a precise location and where no alternative parking is reasonably available.

Applications for dispensation permits will be considered from:

Dispensations will not normally be considered where there is reasonable off street parking nearby or if the dispensation is being deemed to be convenience rather than necessity.

To do this you need to print the Dispensation Application form PDF (360 KB) and either bring it in person to the civic offices or post it to parking services where the location will be accepted and the permit issued. Alternatively, you can call parking services on 01329 236 100 where you will be able to pay and receive your dispensation over the phone.

The cost is £10 for one day and £30 for a week, longer periods are available on request only.

FAQs

How many permits can you buy?

In most areas there is a maximum of two permits per household, with the exception of High Street, Osborn Road and Wickham Road (Beehive Cottages) which are limited to one permit per household. If you are a High Street resident and buy a season ticket for Lysses car park, it can also be used as a residents' permit for High Street (area D). We consider exceptions individually.

Where can you park if you buy a permit?

Within marked parking bays designated for parking permits (not on footpaths, verges or across other private accesses). The permits are area specific which means they relate to the household registered. This is shown by a letter (for example "A", for area A) on road signs which must correspond to the permit on display. Most areas encompass several streets to allow residential permit holders nearby parking.  A permit does not guarantee you a space but there should be fewer non-residents parking in your street.

Can my friend or visitors use my permit?

No, the permit is for you. It will show your name, address and car registration number.

What type of vehicle can you use with a permit?

The permit can have to up two vehicle registrations printed on it. These can only be for light vehicles with a maximum unladen weight of 2 tonnes (40cwt). Lorries, caravans, trailers, boats and agricultural equipment are not allowed.  Motorcycles are exempt from the restrictions so do not need a permit.

How will the visitor day permit scheme work?

Visitor scratch cards are available for a maximum stay of up to four hours or 24 hours. You should give your visitor a scratch card which, after scratching off the date and time, they should place in their vehicle so that they can park for the time allowed.  You can buy books of 10 visitor permits. We will consider multiple book sales on an individual basis and our parking services team keeps an electronic record of visitor book sales.

How much do visitor day permits cost?

The first book of 10 scratch cards will be issued at no charge with each permit. For additional visitor cards, a book of 10 scratch cards costs £10 for 24 hour scratch cards (£1 each) and £5 for four hour scratch cards (50p each).

Can you buy visitor day permits if you don't have a resident's permit?

Yes, if you live on a street where you are eligible for a residents' permit.

When does the residents' parking scheme operate?

Our civil enforcement officers operate it on behalf of Hampshire County Council.

What happens if you move house or change your vehicle?

You can buy a permit at any time of the year and it is valid for either 12 or 24 months. We can refund permits for the remaining full calendar months but there will be an administration charge of £10. If you change your vehicle, we can issue a replacement permit but you will need to show us your new vehicle registration document.

What about visits by health workers, medical staff and carers?

They can either use a visitor scratch card from a resident or apply for an 'essential visitor' special permit for health workers/carers on duty. There is no charge for this if visitors are working on behalf of the National Health Service.

What about residents who need regular care visits by family or a carer who are not a medical/nursing professional?

If you are a resident, you can either give your visitor a scratch card or apply for a 'resident carer' permit. They will need to show proof for eligibility and that there is a need for regular visits. It costs the same as a standard residents' permit.

How will it work for businesses?

Businesses that operate in Fareham can apply for a Business Permit at a cost of £40 per annum. This allows a vehicle to park for up to one hour provided the driver is there for business purposes in that area.

How will it work for trades people and deliveries?

Trades people can either use a visitor scratch card permit or obtain a parking dispensation from the Council, as currently available. Contact Parking Services for details. Deliveries can be made under a short observed time period. This will allow up to 20 minutes for goods vehicles and 5 minutes for cars that are loading and unloading within permit parking bays.

What about blue badge holders?

If you display a blue badge, your vehicle will be exempt from any permit parking restrictions. We will issue you a residents' parking permit without charge. If you are a blue badge holder without a car, you can also apply for visitor tickets. Advisory disabled bays will be incorporated into the scheme and will not be removed if still required.

Is parking across dropped kerbs allowed?

It is now a contravention to park across dropped kerbs. If we consider that a vehicle is causing an obstruction on a dropped kerb to a premises, shared acess, or tactile crossing, we may serve the driver with a penalty charge notice.  Please inform our parking services team if your access is obstructed by an unknown parked vehicle and you need to get access in or out.

Where can you park with a permit?

Within marked parking bays designated for parking permits (not on footpaths, verges or across other private accesses). The permits relate to a specific area and this is shown by a letter (for example "A" for area A) on road signs which must correspond to the permit on display. Most areas encompass several streets to allow residential permit holders nearby parking. A permit does not guarantee you a space but there should be fewer non-residents parking in your street.

You can get a residents permit application form reception in the Civic Offices in Fareham or by contacting at parkingservices@fareham.gov.uk  or 01329 236100.
