Worthing - Residents' and non-residents' parking permits

In Worthing a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) operates. This means in some areas of Worthing, a parking permit is required to park on roads within the CPZ. To find out if the CPZ operates on the road you wish to park in, please check the roadside signs which will show you which part of the CPZ (if any) the road is in. Alternatively please look for your road in this zone plan:

Business parking permits (dispensation notices)

Dispensation notices are issued to commercial vehicles and trades people such as plumbers, electricians and telephone engineers, allowing parking in free limited waiting bays (eg free parking for 1 hour, no return within 1 hour bays) and on yellow lines (not taxi ranks, disabled bays, bus stops or loading bays) at or near customer's properties.

Dispensation notices may typically be issued for legitimate works requiring the use of tools and equipment that cannot easily be removed from the vehicle or where the vehicle itself is needed in order to carry out a function e.g. as a mobile power source for other equipment.

The chief criterion in deciding whether a vehicle should be granted exemption is whether it is essential that the vehicle is left on-street (either in a parking bay or on yellow lines) close to a property in order to carry out a particular function.

The authority reserves the right to assess each application for exemption on its merits to determine whether an exemption is essential and therefore justified.
