Important Information on Car Park Closures

Due to essential Environment Agency flood defence works planned this summer, Bitts Park car park will be closed between Tuesday 4 August 2020 and 31 March 2021.

The Environment Agency flood improvements are vital for protecting the city from future flood risks. We apologise for any inconvenience the car park closure may cause.

Alternative parking is available in nearby car parks including Castle car park, The Sands car park and Swifts Bank car park. Although some flood defence works will be carried out in Swifts Bank car park, it will remain open.

When using the car parks, customers are advised to follow social distancing guidance and if possible, pay by card or contactless rather than use cash and park in alternate bays. The majority of council car parks provide contactless payment options including credit/debit card, mobile phone using MiPermit, Apple Pay and Android Pay.

Overnight closures of Caldew Riverside, Castle and West Walls car parks have been reinstated. This prevents access or exit from the car parks each evening from 8pm to 6.30am the next day in Caldew Riverside and Castle car parks. West Walls car park closes between 11pm and 6.30am
