Notice period/payment

In order for your application to be processed on time, and warning notices to be given to other residents, all initial applications and payments must be received a minimum of five clear working days before you need the suspension to start. Failure to do so may result in the suspension not being processed.

The day of submission is not included in the notice period irrespective of whether it is received prior to midday. The office hours are Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm. We do not count bank and public holidays or Saturday and Sundays as notification days, so you should take these into account when arranging a suspension. In most cases a charge will be made for this service.

If application and payment are not received within the deadline, the next available start date will be offered.

Charge to renew your licence

A new application will be required if a licence is not renewed before the expiry date and relevant charges will apply.

Renewals will be counted as continuous rolling days and the appropriate tier rate will apply.
