Parking Dispensations

IMPORTANT: The management of on-street parking including the issue of Parking Dispensations will be moving to Hampshire County Council on the 1 October 2023 and applications, for any dispensation on or from the 1 October, will need to be made to them. Visit for more information and how to apply.
For applications for dispensations for any day up to and including the 30 September please make application to Winchester City Council as per the information and form below. Our online form will not be available for use from the 29 September, so if applying for a dispensation on that day for either the 29 or 30 September, please do so by telephoning 01962 848 346 no later than 3pm to enable us to consider, and if approved arrange for you.


Winchester City Council can issue permits to allow vehicles to park, where parking restrictions apply when a certain activity needs to be carried out. 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.

Although not an exclusive list, applications for a dispensation will be considered from or for:

  • Removal Vehicles
  • Shop Fitting Vehicles
  • Building Operations
  • Highway Maintenance
  • Crane Operations
  • Glaziers

An application for dispensations will not normally be granted where there is reasonable alternative off-street parking nearby, or if it seems the dispensation is being requested for convenience rather than necessity.
