Long Short Stay Car Park

A number of changes to car parks around the district will take effect from 1st April.

Residents are being advised to make themselves aware of the changes in case they are affected whilst working or shopping within the town.

One of the biggest changes will be the renaming of Bromsgrove Train Station Car Park which will be known as Aston Fields Car Park. Alongside the name change there will also be the option for shoppers to use this car park for free for up to two hours, provided a ‘free’ ticket is obtained from the machine and displayed showing the time and date.

Also being renamed is the Hanover Street Car Park which will be known as St John Street Car Park. This car park will be re-designated to become a short stay car park and once the new Waitrose is complete in May, will be available for shoppers in the store and town centre. Waitrose Customers spending £10.00 in the store will also be eligible to have up to £1.00 of their car park fee refunded by the store.*

New Road, Parkside and Recreation Road South car parks will also be re-designated to long stay car parks with New Road and Parkside being available for use by long stay season ticket holders.

The charging structure for all of these car parks will be amended accordingly, based on existing tariffs. The changes are taking place as a result of customer demand and subsequent amendments to the Council’s Parking Order.

Guy Revans, Head of Environmental Services, said: “We apologise for any confusion the changes may initially cause and would advise frequent users of these car parks to be aware of when they will be taking effect.”
