Coach Park Closure January 2020

We have been advised that the Coach Park will be closed from 06/01/2020 until 06/07/2020. Please see map (PDF, 191KB) for further details.

Proposed introduction of parking charges to Sherwood Drive August 2019 

We are considering the implementation of parking charges to the car park on Sherwood Drive (opposite Bunkers Crescent), and also to the parking spaces on street adjacent to the Station as shown on the attached plan (PDF, 704KB).

This would enable us to better manage the parking, preventing parking on the access road to the car park (which is hazardous as it obscures visibility) and tidy up the car parking area (refill pot-holes and mark out designated spaces) .

The proposed charge is £1 per 24 hour stay in the car park and £3 per 12 hour stay on street. 

This is an informal consultation and we have written to the affected residents for their views.
