On street car parking

In addition there are on street short stay pay and display parking places in: Barnard Street, Beaumont Street, Duke Street, East Raby Street, East Row, Gladstone Street, Grange Road, Hargreave Terrace, Horsemarket, Kendrew Street, Larchfield Street, Napier Street, North Lodge Terrace, Northumberland Street, Park Place, Powlett Street, Primrose Street, Raby Street, South Arden Street, Victoria Embankment, Victoria Road, West Powlett Street and Winston Street.

Most parking places are limited to a maximum of two hours (no return within one hour) except Grange Road and Northumberland Street which are three hours (no return within one hour) and East Row and Horsemarket which are 30 mins (no return within one hour). This is to stop meter feeding which in turn assists with a turnover of parking spaces so visitors to the town centre can park close to businesses located on these streets.
Therefore once you have purchased a ticket you cannot top up your time once that ticket has expired you must leave the street and not return within one hour.

The exception to this rule are East Row and Horsemarket – next to the indoor market which are limited to 30 minutes parking, no return within an hour.

Off street car parking and charges

There are short stay and long stay off street car parks surrounding the town centre, their location and charges are below. Paybyphone operates in all Council off street car parks. Most Council Car Parks are covered by 24 hour CCTV surveillance.

Larger vehicles may use more than one parking space in the off street car parks, where the height restriction permits, provided that payment is made for all the parking spaces used.
