From 1 April 2018 Lancashire Parking Services, which is part of Lancashire County Council, is responsible for issuing all on-street parking permits and dispensations.
From this date the tradesperson’s parking permit will no longer be available to park in on-street residents’ and on-street pay and display parking bays in Lancaster or Morecambe. However, as with the rest of Lancashire you can apply for a dispensation which provides the same exemption. You will no longer need a permit or dispensation to display as these are managed electronically. Two working days' notice is required to administer the application and dispensations cannot be issued for the same day or over the phone.
Dispensations cost £5 per day, per vehicle.
