Investing in our car parks

Update 17 November 2017

Depot Road car park has re-opened today Friday 17 November.

The car park will remain open for the final phase of work, which includes the installation of new pay machines and additional lighting for your security.

When using Depot Road car park, please be aware of the new configuration (the lane layout may be different to what you are used to in some areas).

We anticipate all the works will be concluded before the end of November.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during the ongoing car park improvements and we hope this work hasn't caused you too much disruption.


Update: 7 November 2017

Depot Road car park will be closed to allow the work detailed below, from Monday 13 November and will reopen Friday 17 November.

This period has been selected to cause the least disruption to those who use the car parks.

The work in the Upper High Street car park will be suspended to allow the accommodation of additional vehicles during this period. Alternative parking is also available in Hook Road multi-story car park. 

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.  

Original post 27 October 2017:

We are making some improvements to Upper High Street and Depot Road car parks, which are due to begin on Monday 30 October and will last for approximately three weeks (weather dependent).

We will be upgrading the ticket machines, which some regular users of the car parks have requested.

The improvements will also include some resurfacing work. We will use this opportunity to realign part of the car park layout to increase capacity and reduce congestion.

Small sections of the car parks will be closed during this three-week period.

Closure of a larger area (which may include the full closure of Depot Road car park some days) will be required, exact dates of which will be confirmed when finalised.

Alternative parking is available in the Hook Road multi-storey car park or in Upper High Street car park. Weekly tickets purchased in advance in Depot Road will also be valid in Upper High Street car park.

We are sorry for any inconvenience these works may cause.
