Works Permits

Where residents or businesses employ contractors or trades people to carry out work at their home or business and there are no off-street parking facilities available, the contractor or trades person may need to park on the road during the controlled hours. St Albans District Council have considered this and offer a works permit which would cover the vehicle for as long as required at a cost of £5.30 per day.
