Residents parking scheme suspension

Erewash Borough Council has designated authority to suspend the residents parking scheme as required. An exemple if this would be the annual Ilkeston Charter Fair, where the Ilkeston scheme will be suspended from the Monday prior to the fair opening. Dates for the suspension will be provided on this website.

Parking Dispensations

Permission to park – known as a dispensation – can be granted to undertake planned works at premises adjacent to parking restrictions, in restricted zones or in residential parking zones. A dispensation will only be granted where it is essential that the vehicle is parked close to the property in order to carry out works and the impact on other road users, businesses or pedestrians, is kept to a minimum. There can only be two active dispensations at an address at any time.

 A dispensation notice will allow extended parking in permit holder bays and limited waiting bays at or near the place of works. In extenuating circumstances if it is essential that the vehicle is left on-street close to a property in order to carry out a particular job, permission may be granted to wait on single yellow lines, loading bays or in zonal areas, e.g. pedestrian zones, but only if no other parking or waiting alternatives nearby can be used, and it is safe to do so.

There is a 5 day process time for any requested dispensation. To apply for a Parking Dispensation, please call our Contact Centre on 0115 9072244 or email your request to parking@erewash.gov.uk, whereby an application form will be returned to you.

Warning: Any person knowingly making a false statement to fraudulently obtain a permit is liable to a fine not exceeding £2,500 (Section 115/2 Road Traffic Act 1984).

We are under a duty to protect the public funds we administer, and to this end may use the information you provide for the prevention and detection of fraud.
