Motorbike Parking

Please see our Milton Keynes Parking Guide (PDF, 3.3MB) for the location of the dedicated motorbike bays. Motorcyclists can park for free in the dedicated bays and currently in all pay and display parking bays, although they are still expected to abide by all other restrictions, e.g. parking only within marked bays (if possible, please park or leave room for more than one motorbike in a single bay), not parking on yellow lines or in resident or disabled bays etc.

Motorhome parking

There is no dedicated motorhome parking available in Milton Keynes. However, we allow motorhome parking across several parking spaces as long as payment has been made for all spaces taken (separate parking tickets should be purchased for each space used). Motorists are requested to ensure that the vehicle is contained wholly within the outer bay markings and does not overhang into the roadway, causing an obstruction. 

Privately operated car parks

Throughout Milton Keynes there are several car parks in the area owned and operated by private companies. The council has no powers over the control of these car parks; however, the council does attempt to work with owners to ensure as far as is possible a common approach to security, pricing and enforcement. Signing within the parking area should indicate the owner/manager of the car park, and contact details.
