If you need to park on a yellow line, for example to carry out work on a property, you will need to apply for a virtual parking dispensation.  

Who can apply 

Anyone can apply for a parking dispensation if they need to park a vehicle on a yellow line in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.  

What it costs 

It costs £32 per day.

There is no charge for some businesses like glazing and scaffolding companies, but they must still apply for a dispensation.  

Apply online 

You must apply for a dispensation online at least 7 working days before you need it. 

You'll need to create an online account if you do not already have one.

What you need to apply 

You'll need to tell us: 

  • the vehicle registration number 
  • when you need to park 
  • where you need to park 
  • how long you need to park for 
  • why you need to park on a yellow line 

If you do not know the vehicle registration number when you apply, you can add it later before you need to park.
