Priory Street Car Park is now open after an extensive refurbishment.

It now benefits from high quality surfacing, improved landscaping and architectural lighting to celebrate the Town Wall; creating a more attractive area for vehicles and pedestrians. The new car park layout has been designed to improve vehicle and pedestrian access and it has been relined with wider spaces to allow better access for disabled people and people with pushchairs.

A new 'pay and display' payment system has been installed, enabling you to pay via their card via contactless and chip card; these run alongside other cashless payment options including ApplePay, MiPermit online, text and phone, or coin.

Drivers wishing to pay by MiPermit are encouraged to complete the quick, free setup of a secure account at home before they visit, if they're not already making use of the service. The app can be downloaded here with other payment options including the online portal, text or phone call.

Christmas late-night shopping. Wednesdays 4, 11 and 18 December 2019. Park for FREE after 3pm.
