messageDo you need to suspend a parking bay on a Saturday for a skip?
Posted by citylover June 11, 01:11PM

Hi, I have to get a skip, builder wants to take everything out on Saturday and the parking restrictions state Mon-Fri. You have to suspend a bay to put a skip there now in Southwark if it has restricted parking but is that only on the days that they have the restrictions? I am hoping not to have to suspend ghe bay because it requires 10 days prior notice. Yes, did call parking, pressed the 'Suspending a bay' option and the guy who answered had no clue, ditto his manager sad smiley

I'd like to see them try and put a clamp on a skip.

The problem you might have is getting a skip company to deliver on a Saturday and take away the same day. Worth checking that first.

d.b., you have to get a licence for a skip so I think they would just fine my builder!

Y are u getting a skip normally the builder deals with skips permits etc I recently had some work done and the builder dealt with all that he used a company that brought the skip Saturday morning at 9 and waited till it was loaded approximately a hour saved a lot of hassle

Most skip companies organise the licence for you. In fact I think they're required to under Southwark byelaws. The skip company has to be registered with Southwark. But the Saturday delivery may well be your bigger obstacle as has been pointed out.

This is a separate issue to skips licences, this is an additional admin thing from Southwark- the need to suspend a parking bay which delays you for a further ten days. I got my answer from Southwark finally though- even if you want the skip on a Saturday when there are no parking restrictions you still have to pay to suspend the bay as if it were a Mon/Tues etc. Doesn't make any sense but I guess it brings in money for the council The extra ten day delay is more annoying than the extra cost thing. Thanks everyone for your input.
