Annual and Commuter car park passes

Annual car park passes are purchased from the Parking Department. The cost of each pass is £600 per year VAT inclusive. They must be paid for the full year. In the event of surrender of the pass, repayment of any unused full months will be made.

When displayed a pass is valid on all council owned long stay car parks. Vehicles may remain on any of the car parks overnight. If left unattended for more than a few days, contact the parking department to prevent unnecessary enquiries occurring. Such a pass is not valid on the Short Stay car parks at Albion Street and Lowgate. The pass is also not valid on the Tower Street car park.
