  • Suspended parking bays are marked out by yellow warning notices which we aim to put up least 10 days before the suspension start date.
  • Parking dispensations allow you to park a vehicle or skip at a restricted location (a yellow line or a parking bay) for a set time period. A dispensation doesn’t guarantee a parking space.
  • In places where there are no existing parking bays or yellow lines a temporary traffic order may be needed to restrict parking.
  • Parking will be retracted and charges applicable if cones are used without specific permission from Waltham Forest Film Office.
