permits options which provides a simple guide on the
majority of available parking options, from hourly through to
12 month permits.
note that hourly and daily tickets can be readily purchased at the
parking meter and don't have to be bought through the Parking
Permit team or One Stop Shops. It is also possible to
purchase weekly tickets (specific to one car park only)
at many of our Pay and Display machines. There are
however some machines where this facility is not possilbe,

availability first. This can be done by clicking on
the link Car park locations, charges and
facilities, finding the car park you wish to visit
and looking at the tariff list .
If you use a long stay car park frequently you can make great
financial savings by purchasing a season ticket - pay one fee and
you can choose up to four car parks across the county in which you
can park. If you wish to purchase a season ticket please view
Ticket Car Park groups and fees.
A rover ticket allows you to use a lot of different long stay
car parks across the county. There is an option of purchasing a
weekly rover ticket, which may be beneficial if you are
visiting the county and going to different areas. Please view more
