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 or a dispensation 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 (in Dutch).
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 (in Dutch).
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.
