PARKING INITIATIVES

Parking initiatives form part of the Accessibility objectives set out in the Business Plan, one of four core priorities that the BID will deliver over its 5-year term. As of October 2019 for an initial 3-month period, all day parking will cost a flat rate £2 on Sundays at 6 major town centre car parks.

This initiative has now been extended until the end of March.

Occupancy rates at town centre car parks on Sundays are historically low. With reduced flat rate parking now in place, we hope to see more people travelling into town on Sundays, increased footfall and trade for local businesses and higher occupancy rates across the participating car parks.
