The suspension has to be booked 5 working days in advance of the required date. These are booked with Kensington and Chelsea council online. For smaller Chelsea removals, using vans, we can load and unload for short periods on single yellow lines. Otherwise a dispensation would need to be booked, if we are packing and Chelsea flat moving.

A Little Bit About Chelsea
Chelsea is within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, previously being the Manor of Chelsea, is situated to the south of the River Thames that runs from Chelsea Bridge along the Chelsea Embankment, Cheyne Walk, Lots Road and Chelsea Harbour.
King Henry VIII acquired the manor of Chelsea from Lord Sandys in 1536; Chelsea Manor Street is still extant. Two of King Henry’s wives, Catherine Parr and Anne of Cleves, lived in the Manor House; Princess Elizabeth – the future Queen Elizabeth I – resided there; and Thomas More lived more or less next door at Beaufort House. In 1609 James I established a theological college, “King James’s College at Chelsey” on the site of the future Chelsea Royal Hospital, which Charles II founded in 1682.
By 1694, Chelsea – always a popular location for the wealthy, and once described as “a village of palaces” – had a population of 3,000. Even so, Chelsea remained rural and served London to the east as a market garden, a trade that continued until the 19th-century development boom which caused the final absorption of the district into the metropolis. The street crossing that was known as “Little Chelsea”, Park Walk, linked Fulham Road to King’s Road and continued to the Thames and local ferry down Lover’s Lane, renamed “Milmans Street” in the 18th century.
