Car Park Strategy

The way that we manage and run our car parks is determined by our Car Park Strategy. This is a bold strategy aiming to improve local economies by putting you, the customer, at the heart of the service.

Changes to car parking charges

We are upgrading the machines in our car parks. The new machines will allow you to pay by card. As part of this work we have also reviewed our car parking chargers. From January 2021 some charges will be changing. To find out more about these changes click on the links below:
