If you run a company in the Netherlands and you want to park your car near your business premises, you sometimes need a business parking permit from your municipality. The criteria for obtaining a parking permit may differ according to municipality.

Use of the roadside

In many municipalities, you are banned from using the roadside as a place to park or as a location for your stall or van. However, you can apply for exemption from this ban to your municipality.

Parking on a provincial road

If you want to park your vehicle on a provincial road, you may need to apply for dispensation from the provincial authorities.

Online application procedure via Message Box

You can apply for dispensation to park on a provincial road also via Message Box. Message Box is a secure email system that enables you as an entrepreneur to exchange digital messages with Dutch government agencies.
