The display window on the car park ticket machine should always be checked before pressing the button for a ticket. It is also the responsibility of the driver of the vehicle to check the car park ticket purchased indicates the required expiry time before placing it within their vehicle.
It is the responsibility of the driver to ensure that they purchase an appropriate ticket for the full duration of their stay and that they return to their vehicle before the expiry time printed on the car park ticket.
Our boards state that Blue Badge holders are entitled to park their vehicles free of charge. Persons with disabilities can park their vehicles in all spaces except for Shopmobility, which is for Shopmobility users only.
Blue Badge holders are also not allowed to park their vehicles out of a marked bay or upon yellow lines in our car parks.
Please refer to the blue badge holder's handbook for further details.
The car park inspectors allow approximately 5 minutes to obtain change for our machines. Vehicles are observed and if a valid ticket has not been purchased within this time limit a penalty charge notice will be issued.
Season tickets and permits that have expired are no longer valid. The tariff board clearly states that a valid parking ticket should be displayed.
This excuse is only acceptable when you have purchased a season ticket or been issued with a permit and have forgotten to display the new one.
NB: We will not backdate season ticket applications, in the event of a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) being issued.
It is the responsibility of the vehicle's owner to ensure that a valid season ticket/permit is on display.
The tariff boards clearly state that parking charges are operational on these days.
