Full off-street car parking charges and enforcement will return from 8am on Monday 6th July 2020.
With the reopening of additional businesses from Saturday, visits to the town centres will now start to increase. Shoppers, workers and visitors should ensure they are displaying the correct tickets or permits from next week, in order to cover their parking stay accordingly and avoid a Penalty Charge Notice.
To reduce the use of Pay and Display ticket machines and handling of cash, the Council are working to introduce an electronic virtual payment system. Customers will be asked to consider downloading the app and registering once in place.
Although charging will be returning to Council car parks, those wising to park in our town centres are reminded that:
- Monday to Friday – There are no parking charges after 4pm, until 8am the next morning in all Council car parks*
- Saturday – There are no parking charges after 12pm, until 8am on Monday in all Council car parks*. In addition, Oxford Street, Eastwood; Victoria Street, Kimberley and Halls Road, Stapleford; are free all day on Saturday.
- Sunday – Parking is free all day in all Council Car Parks*
* Excluding Station Road and Technology Drive in Beeston
