Car Park Tickets and Permits
Reduced price season tickets
We're running a trial of reduced annual season ticket charges until the end of March. This is totally separate from the tickets detailed below. To find out more, see the reduced season tickets page.
How to purchase longer term tickets and permits
To apply for a new parking permit please see car park tickets and permits options which provides a simple guide on the majority of available parking options, from hourly through to 12 month permits.
Please 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 possible, so if you wish to purchase one please check its 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 the Season 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 information on countywide rover tickets. In addition we have a 24 hour countywide Coach rover ticket available, see Coach rover ticket.
