There is now free weekend and Bank Holiday parking in nine of our city centre car parks.
In addition to the weekend offer, we have also introduced a reduced rate parking charge of £1 for the first hour of parking across our city centre pay and display car parks.
The parking promotions started in April 2022.
The nine participating car parks are: Caldew Riverside, Castle, Viaduct, Sands, Swifts, West Walls, Bitts Park, Lowther Street and the Civic Centre.
The offer is aimed at supporting recovery on the high street and does not therefore extend to parking at Paddy’s Market (all-day car park) and Talkin Tarn car park.
Overnight barrier closures in Castle, Caldew Riverside and West Walls car parks will remain in place as per current arrangements. The overnight closure times may be reviewed/extended at weekends and bank holidays to reflect any changing demands but will be kept under review should this lead to any increase in anti-social behaviour
