Long stay parking

To park for 2 or more days, pay for parking using the RingGo pay by phone service.

  • don’t need to put a parking ticket in your car (Civil Enforcement Officers can check which vehicles are parked with RingGo via their handheld units)
  • can pay for long or short stay parking
  • can extend your parking time
  • can buy multiple days of parking

If you do not pay for additional days in advance, you risk being issued with a penalty change notice if you do not return to your car before 8.00am.

Accessible parking

Blue Badge holders can park in any bay in this car park, free of charge, for as long as they want.

There are 5 dedicated disabled bays which are available for Blue Badge holders only.
