Buy or hire no-waiting cones

You can hire or purchase cones from Highways Operations to use at events across Dorset.

Placing no-waiting cones at the edge of the road doesn't make parking restrictions enforceable. If you want to formally suspend parking, you will need to contact Highways Operations. If you are organising an event, such as a carnival, be sure to refer to our guidance on organising events on the highway.
