Suspension of Parking Bays

The Council sometimes will need to suspend or partly suspend bays, spaces or restrictions for specific purposes such as:

  • Building works / skips
  • Domestic removals
  • Weddings
  • Funerals
  • Special Events
  • Road Works
  • Facilitating the flow/movement of traffic

This would allow a particular activity to be carried out and involve restricting the associated area.

Suspension signs are erected warning motorists of the duration and reason for the suspension. It is an offence to park within a suspended bay and unauthorised vehicles found to be parked within the suspended bay a Penalty Charge Notice may be issued.

Areas may also need to be suspended by Northamptonshire Police without prior warning for reasons including public safety and security under powers as stipulated under Schedule 4, Part 27 of the Road Traffic Act 1991 for a maximum of 7 days.

Please note that Parking Suspensions can only be issued for areas where parking restrictions apply.

If you are applying for the suspension of parking bays where the location is outside Kettering Borough then you are to apply directly to Northamptonshire County Council.
